In the death of Dr. Nathan Smith Davis the medical profession has lost a member who always stood for the highest and noblest in ethics, in morals and in right living. Dr. Davis worked long and earnestly for high ideals in medicine, and for the betterment of his profession in every way. He represented before the people the best and purest in that profession, and he always advocated that which he believed to be for the welfare of his confrères and for the good of the people. However, it was as a medical teacher that Dr. Davis was best known, and thousands of men now in practice reverence his name because of the influence he exerted on them during their student days. He was one of the leaders in urging a higher standard of entrance requirements and a more practical method of instruction. Many years before it was adopted he was an advocate of the graded course.
