This book is a superbly chronicled account of the first 75 years of this prestigious eye institute. The affection and love of the author, Robert B. Welch, for the Wilmer Institute and its traditions and spirit permeates the entire book. This book is the product of hard work and is clearly a labor of love. In 403 pages, the author has built on his previously written history of the first 50 years with Dr M. Elliott Randolph, and developed a more encompassing and detailed history.
