Two sentences contained errors in the October 19, 1994, review of From Humors to Medical Science. Correct versions are as follows: The evolution in the character of US medical practice "probably began with the brighter and wealthier sons of the upper classes who could afford to go abroad to finish their clinical and academic training in London, Edinburgh, or Leyden"; the Flexner report and Rockefeller Foundation philanthropy "in turn stimulated more philanthropy to support medical research, but by 1930 only 66 medical schools remained."
