June UNE 1965 was the occasion of the dedication of the new Hadassah-Hebrew University Hospital building, the celebration of the 20th birthday of the Medical School, and the 40th birthday of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Under these auspicious auspices there was a symposium devoted to the impact made by advances in the basic sciences on medical practice and teaching. The focus was on the future. The papers have been printed in the Israel Journal of Medical Sciences. Some time before this I had been reminded by John Talbott that Thomas Hodgkin was buried in Jaffa. Dr. Talbott had lost an opportunity to visit the grave recently when caught among misdirected taxis, misplaced airports, and missed directions. So it came about that one day last June several of us set forth on a pilgrimage from the new Jerusalem to ancient Jaffa or Joppa. Dr. Joshua Leibowitz, professor of medical history
