The Class of 1966 takes special pleasure in dedicat-
ing its yearbook, the Aesculapian, to Dr. Yale Kneeland,
Ir. Endowed not only with a keen sense of humor but
with a genuine sense of humanity, Dr. Kneeland has made
his courses in physical and differential diagnosis memor-
able educational experiences. Few instructors have brought
the energy and dedication to the task of teaching which
he has-fewer succeeded so well. As a healer, scientist,
and teacher, Dr. Kneeland will remain without peer in

Not long after I had been informed that the Fourth Year Class
was graciously proposing to dedicate its Year Book to me, a repre-
sentative asked if I would be willing to write a few words for inclu-
sion in the book. This should have seemed like the easiest and pleas-
antest task in the world. Surely anyone still in possession of some
remnant of his senses who has existed in the world of academic
medicine until the verge of retirement should have something to say
worth reading. At least this would appear to be the opinion of most
of my colleagues who have the misfortune to belong to the same
vintage as I. They are constantly putting into elegant prose the dis-
tilled essence of their wisdom. Subjects such as Medical Education,
Medicine and Society, the Distribution of Health Services, and the
shape of things to come are the inspirations for innumerable papers
that I have seen in medical and para-medical journals during recent
years. I have read them with a feeling of awe, but when confronted
with a request to do a similar job myself, I was overpowered by the
thought that every conceivable thing about Medicine that can be
said has been said far better than I could. As the deadline approach-
ed, my sense of frustration deepened. Finally it occurred to me that
there was one subject about which I might write very briefly, as I
had a feeling for it. The subject was the Medical Student.
I suppose in the United States of America there are thirty-odd
thousand young gentlemen who fit into this category. They have
been carefully selected for admission to medical school on the basis
of a number of qualities which are clearly defined in the minds of the
members of Admissions Committees. These include much better than
average endowment of native intelligence, scholastic achievement,
emotional stability, dedication Cwhatever that meansj, character, and
personal charm. In consequence, the medical student is a most fan-
tastically pleasant person to deal with. He is not an Angry Young Man.
He has no pent-up stores of resentment against society. He is tre-
mendously cooperative, enormously industrious, and, all in all, not
only a gifted but a very good man. Thus, there are thirty-odd thou-
sand of these young paragons who are still in a stage of innocence
and are as yet uncontaminated by the cynicism which affects some
physicians later in life. As a category of human beings, I have never
seen their equal. Gentlemen, I salute you. May the aura of innocence
and virtue surround you always.
Yale Kneeland, Jr.
