This autobiography records the life of Dr. Winslow from birth and boyhood in Boston and in New England through a period spent in Florida. He then discusses his medical training in the Massachusetts General Hospital and his early days as a student and teacher and as an intern. The book then goes on to describe his early practice on the Cape, removal to the West, a period of special study in the Mayo Clinic, and his adventures in the World War. The volume is distinctly personal and offers some interesting anecdotes of medical life.
