Those who know Dr. Charles M. Rosser will be glad to have in book form a reflection of his forceful character, his eloquence and his humor. His contribution to the development of medicine in the Southwest is widely recognized. He gives us pictures of the country doctors of the old school and takes us then to the University of Louisville Medical Department, where he acquired his own education. He tells of his career, which included almost every phase of medical practice, as well as the life of the physician as a teacher and a citizen. What his account may lack in literary skill, it gains in forthrightness. In his career he met most of the great and near great in medical practice. He served his time in the courts and in political relationships; he aided in the extension of medical education to the public and he advanced scientific medical legislation.
