Verwey Heirs of a great dynasty , . . We remember millions of sterile pipettes, Noguchi, shattered glass through 3 rooms . . . and enough material for a dozen third year shows. Dr. Klosterman's hard work to be clinical to a gang of "as yet" pure scientists. Does the spirochete have a right or a left hand turn? Now Dr. Francis . . . is there a virus pneumonia? CHEMISTRY R. Keith Cannon Profenor and Director of Chemical brboralorier Isidore Greenwald Milton Levy Anociate Profesror Afrirlant Profefror Albert H. Palmer Julius Redish Inxtruclor Auirtant Fellow! Robert C. Warner Charles Grossman Who can ever forget the hot "moe-lecule". How we dabbled in urine in which we later bathed. Dr. Greenwald's scholarly lectures struck home to our puerile minds even then. Where "tap" day meant quite an initiation and how it turned out to be a mild hazing of freshmen. We can still remember the bottles we carried - and still taste the calcium chloride.

Martin Vagharshag Boghesian William Director Maurice Costello Samuel Irgang Where we learned that there are two types of skin lesionsg one treated with Calamine Lotion and the other with Neoarsphenamine. A too brief but stim- ulating exposure to the wisdom and culture of a gentleman of the old school. Another "last edition" for the class of 1939. Dr. Fox's amazing energy and enthusiasm second only to his scholarship. Another "last edition" for the class of 1939. fm MEDICINE William S. Tiller Proferror of Medicine joseph E. Connery Arthur C.

The basis of this psychosis was an unhappy intrauterine life. If oriented it's a schizophrenic, if disorienred it's leutic, or if in doubt it's a neurosis with manic tendencies. The much imitated Dr. Schilder, the calm Dr. Bowman, the parade of the patients, the depressant effects of a continuous bath.

Although among the present generation of students only the senior class enjoyed the privilege of personal contact with Dr. Senior, many of the features in which the life of today's students is more pleasant and more profitable than was that of the students of twenty-five years ago are partially or wholly due to his influence. Dr. Senior was born in England in 1870 and received his medical education at the Charing Cross Hospital Medical College in London and at Durham University. Most of his professional life, however, was passed in this country, of which he was a naturalized citizen. Having occupied research and teaching positions at the Wistar Institute of Anatomy and the Syracuse University Medical College, Dr. Senior was appointed Professor of Anatomy and Director of the Anatomical Laboratories at our medical college in 1910, a chair which he filled until his retirement in 1936, and filled so well that to our alumni it is difficult to think of the medical school without his kindly presence. Fortunately a group of his friends and admirers had the happy thought of having his portrait painted and presented to the college shortly before his retirement. This portrait, which hangs in the lobby of the 28th Street Building, is a very happy representation of a scholar, a gentleman, and a gentle human being, who will long be mourned. ..2.-. .. .,. . . ..,.,..,,....,..,. AILIEXANI IER IFR!-XSIEIR, Dr. Alexander Fraser, a member of the Faculty of the New York University College of Medicine from 1910, when he entered the Department of Path- ology, until his retirement in 1934 as Professor of Pathological Histology, died on September 18, 1958, one year short of the Biblical three score and ten. He was born in Nova Scotia in 1869. He graduated from Pictou Academy at 16 and received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Dalhousie University in 1889 at the age of 20. At Dalhousie he made a remarkable scholastic record in that he won the Governor General's gold medal for all around excellence. There also he came under the encouraging influence of Andrew Seth, who afterwards became Professor of Philosophy in Edinburgh. This philosophical bent carried him to Harvard where he became a university scholar. William James took particular note of his ability and recommended that he become a Fellow in Psychology at Clark University under Stanley Hall. While there, before attaining the age of 23, he wrote articles on various philosophical problems-on the works of Hobbes, Locke, Berkeley, and Hume-notably articles on the psychological foundation of natural realism, also on the psy- chological basis of Hegelism, and several articles on the philosophy of Kant. At this time he was pointed toward a teaching career in philosophy but was influenced by his brother, Dr. Frank Fraser, to study medicine. He there- fore entered Dalhousie Medical College in 1893 and received his degree in 1897. Though his real talent apparently lay along the line of philosophical in- quiry, these philosophical leanings fitted him especially for the study of medi- cine, in particular pathology, to which he devoted his later years. In 1910 he became a member of this Faculty as Assistant in Clinical Pathology. In 1917 he was made Assistant Professor of Pathology and in 1920 he was advanced to Professor of Pathological Histol- ogy, which Chair he held until his retirement in 1954. He held the posi- tion of Pathologist to several hos- pitals, the most important of which was St. Vincent's Hospital. He was a member of the Academy of Medi- cine, the New York Pathological Society, the Harvey Society, and the American Medical Association. His publications, though not num- erous, all showed in quality and in reasoning the thoroughness of his trained mind. Dr. Fraser enjoyed the most plea- sant relationship with his students and with his co-workers on the Fac- ulty. His affable, congenial person- ality has been missed these recent years. ILUICY la-oawtta sorrow Lucy Porter Sutton, born February 6, 1891, died 1 on December 25, 1958 of acute monocytic leukemia. She graduated from Barnard College in 1916 and from the Cornell Medical College in 1919, and served as interne in Bellevue Hospital on the Second Medical and for one year on the Children's Medical Service. After leaving the hospital she worked in the Children'si Out-Patient Department and was soon ' A made an Adjunct Physician. Later she became As- ' A ' " 5 sistant and then Associate Visiting. She was As- sistant Professor of Pediatrics from 1950. Early in her work she became especially interested in the Cardiac Clinic. In 1926 she was made its Chief and was placed in charge of all patients with rheumatic fever and its complications. Studying patients with pericardial effusion she first used the posterior route for paracentesis in children. Her work also did much to clear up the puzzling physical signs in the posterior chest in this condition. 1 In 1950 a child with chorea was accidently poisoned with a barbiturate, which caused fever, and which was followed by a prompt cessation of the choreiform movements. This suggested to Dr. Sutton's mind that fever might help chorea. The surprising results which followed fast from fever induced with typhoid paratyphoid vaccine showed that her inspiration was correct. The careful painstaking study of the best methods of handling these cases has been a model of scientific method. The development of fever therapy under Dr. Sutton has made Bellevue Hos- pital famous throughout the country. It is noteworthy that the manufacturers of the Kettering Hypertherm chose Dr. Sutton as best fitted to conduct research with this new apparatus. Dr. Sutton's long continued study of heart disease in childhood has taught us much. The im- portance of her contributions is better appreciated by those interested in heart disease than in the general pediatric world. ' - The keynote of her personality was her remarkable poise. She was quiet in manner and voice, yet a good public speaker and teacher. Her judgment and ability to weigh evidence was unusual. Her sense of humor, her even disposition and her staunch loyalty so endeared her to her friends and associates that her sudden death was the greatest shock to us all. The department and school has suffered an irreparable loss. Although Dr. Sutton possessed a splendid physique, her health had never been robust. This did not prevent her from doing a man's work. But in doing it she never lost her feminine qualities. It is planned to place a bronze tablet in Cardiac Clinic in her honor.. A collection of the best books on heart disease will also beikept as a memorial in the library of the Children's Medical Service. I .lOl-IIN I OUICILAS john Douglas was born in New York City on August 5, 1875. After a distinguished career, he died at his residence on December 5, 1938 in his 63rd year. His preliminary education was received in the public schools of this city. He was graduated with the degree of Bachelor of Science from the College of the City of New York in 1895, and with the degree of Doctor of Medicine from the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University in 1898. He served internships in St. Luke's Hospital from July, 1898 to January, 1900, and subsequently at the Sloane Hospital for Women. During the remainder of this year he continued his studies abroad, principally in Vienna. Soon after his return he was appointed to St. Luke's Hospital on the service of Dr. B. Farquhar Curtis, who was Professor of the Principles of Surgery in the University and Bellevue Hospital Medical College. In 1903, on the recom- mendation of Dr. Curtis, he became attached to Bellevue Hospital and this medical school. He was appointed Instructor in 1904 and Clinical Professor of Surgery in 1912, which position he held until his death. He was made a Visiting Surgeon to Bellevue Hospital in 1912 and resigned his position in 1927 at which time he became Visiting Surgeon and head of a service at St. Luke's Hospital. He held this position until his last ill- ness. Latterly he was a Consultant Surgeon at Bellevue, St. Luke's, Knickerbocker and the Harlem Eye and Ear Hospitals. Doctor Douglas was, during his professional lifetime, a member of many medical and surgical societies. As a teacher, Doctor Douglas was lucid and convincing. His surgery was courageous, thorough, and deci- sive. He was a frequent contributor to medical literature and enjoyed the keen discussion of controversial subjects. John Douglas was an ar- dent advocate of the ethics of his specialty and his willingness to light for these principles will be sorely missed. CARIL IBGIETTIIGIEIR death on February 1, 1959 of Professor Carl Boettiger. Dr. Boettiger was born in New York City on June 13, 1879. He received his medical degree from Cornell University in 1905 and subsequently did graduate work in pathology and bacteriology at Hafvard and Cornell Uni- versities. For many years he was pathologist and since 1929 visting physician to St. John's Hospital, Long Island City, and during the war he was in charge of the laboratory at the Base Hospital at Camp Bowie, Texas. In 1935 he was appointed visiting physician and director of the medical service of the Queens General Hospital. Dr. Boettiger was extremely active in medical affairs in Queens County, having served as president of the Queens County Medical Society and of the Second District Branch of the State Medical Society. He was also president of the Queensboro Tuberculosis and Health Association and played an important role in many health activities of' the borough. His connection with New York University came with his appointment as clinical professor of medicine in November 1938, at the time of the afiiliation of New York University College of Medicine and Queens General Hospital. His membership on the Faculty was tragically short but during even that brief period those of us who were privileged to work with him in college and hospital affairs acquired an admiration and true affection for him. He was simple, unassuming and modest yet steadfast in his convictions. He was an idealist yet his plans were practically and carefully laid. Perhaps his outstand- ing traits were his intellectual and moral honesty and his faith in his friends and colleagues. Carl Boettiger devoted the final years of his life to the Queens General Hospital and one of his last great interests was the development of an affilia- tion between the hospial and this college. That this affiliation came about was due largely to him and the school affirms its sincere sympathy with the purposes he envisioned. WIIILILIIAM ll-IIAILILOCIIQ IPARK This truly great physician possessed a sympathetic appreciation and a keen understanding of the problems of his students and co-workers. During his forty years of service to our Medical College and to the New York City Department of Health, his whole hearted friendliness, ready accessibility, and genuine altruism earned for him the esteem and regard of all who knew him. He received and advised the initiate as willingly as the Nobel Prize Winner. Dr. Park was born in New York City in 1863. He attended the city schools and was graduated from the College of the City of New York in 1883. Three years later the College of Physicians and Surgeons granted him the degree of Doctor of Medicine. He served a three year internship at the Roose- velt Hospital and then went to Vienna. Vfhen he returned, he devoted most of his time to the practice of Rhino-laryngology at several of the institutions of this City. While on a scholarship granted by Dr. Mitchell Prudden, Pro- fessor of Pathology at the College of Physicians and Surgeons, he determined a practical cultural method of differentiating the diphtheritic sore throat. His first laboratory was located in the cellar of his home. Ingenuity over- came minor difliculties. Incubators were improvised from a wash boiler con- taining watet maintained at body temperature in which were held the little tubes of media which he personally distributed and collected from sever- al drugstotes. These were used by some of his personal friends, phys- icians who believed in his work. Dr. Herman M. Biggs, then Health Officer of the City of New York became interested in the young scientist and in 1894 created for him the special post of Bacteriological Diagnostician in Diphtheria. The same year Emil Behring discovered antitoxin. After having tested it in children, Emil Roux, presented his remarkable results at the Medical Congress of Budapest which Dr. Biggs was attending. He was thor- oughly convinced of the value of this new discovery and cabled at once to his assistant to start producing the fContim1ed on Page 165, '. gp e i 2 Q sw gfx 'f YE QC 1 -3- xs 44 X A 'N-QQ 5 Z", V' 'XE- ' X 55m0'Zi l .,,,-ff' Julius Charles Abels, B.A. Sinai Hospital, Baltimore, Md.

Ely Lazarus Paul Unger Eleanor Hayden Charles Wise SENIOR HISTORY CHAPTER 1 When I recovered consciousness on the beach, I looked about me and perceived that I was the sole survivor. Behind me was the ocean, ahead a seemingly impenetrable jungle. I went ahead, not without misgivings. The days in the forest were long and terrifying at first. For many days away from the sea I encountered nothing but bones strewn between the treesg gruesome, but when ground up formed an excellent form of no-urishment. Pushing on, I fell into a deep morass, and would have lost my life had I not discovered that by chanting little jingles over and over I could keep my head above water. After this episode I began to encounter more signs of life, a circumstance which added to my diet but also to my annoyance. Very disturbing yellow and green insects plagued me at intervals, making a noise like "quizz-zz-z" and inflicting a painful if not dangerous sting. Larger beasts I met rarely, though once I was nearly scared out of my wits by a powerful but harmless creature who suddenly appeared and called me by name. This first part of my journey was otherwise uneventful until the forest began to clear and I came into a meadow land, nicely laid out with neat little irrigation canals and brown paths. In strange contrast to this peaceful scene were the mounted warriors who suddenly appeared and bore me away to the castle of the proprietor, the redoubtable Lord Keith. I was in great fear of the lord, but he turned out to be an urbane host who after questioning me briefly regaled me with a meal of sardines, olive oil, avocados and coffee with butterg and he offered to let me stay in his domain as long as I liked, but I refused. I left the next I morning, covered a few more I :J 1 Q miles the next day and found I , X 0 ff myself at the edge of a vast if i desert. my v, 65:2-are ge,-fat 432 MW V T,?r'--gf" f Xi,-21" in 5 A tfem+ E+ 0 i.? 3- 0 CHAPTER II This was a severe test for me to face after what I had already gone throughg but again there was no going back, and after a short rest I packed up and set off. In the desert, under a strange bluish sun, again the sight of living things was barred from my vision, not that I didn't see' enough of death. While my supplies were adequate to carryme through the desert, my morale ebbed continuously. A strange form of desert madness attacked me at intervals. I would imagine I had the strangest diseases, such as the blind staggers, the winter scouts, or limberneck, and would pass through in my own mind all that I knew of the manifesta- tions of these maladies. I surely would not have survived these intolerable delusions had I not had the good fortune to come across a magnificent oasis, which afforded me the company of its inhabitants for a few days. In a little tattered tent set up next to a peculiar tank of concrete whose purpose I could not imagine, I found a talkative anchorite, who had moved into the desert to get the fresh air he desired. He persisted in talking about figure skating, which I could see no use for at the moment, so I left. Next door was his neigh- ., bor Julius, sitting on a pile of unopened food tins, each of which bulged slightlyg ,he was slowly starv- ing to death. I shuddered and passed on, to meet a f- dark-haired gentleman who busied himself running .v- '. Q . fi? IQ , ,1 around the oasis, picking up everything that had a 'gf' hole in it, or a projection on it, and trying to tit them together in every possible way. These sights " ' preserved my sanity by turning my thoughts from Af' ' -'3:- X myself, and I went out into the desert a new man. CJ A few days farther I came upon C' l an impressive sight-two vast and . l t 1' , trunkless legs of stone standing -u alone in the desert. On the pedestal .X I, these words were inscribed: My pf- , name ' if Irving, King of Kirzgr. ' J -1 . Gaze on my W07',6J, ye Mighty, and y Z Derpair!

In order to earn my passage across I was forced to do the work of a seaman, which was extremely difficult for me, not only because of my inexperience fas I foolishly thought at first, but because the officers were not very much aware of where the ship was supposed to go or what the others were doing about it. I knew nothing of nautical terminology and was doubly confused therebyg it took me a while to learn that "starboard astern" means nothing more than the right sacnim posterior of a ship. I was ordered about incontinent from one job to another, and since nobody seemed to care whether I did the right thing or not so long as I said, "Aye, aye, Sir" I managed to get along fairly well and soon picked up the ability to use the language and the tools of the sea. just when things were running smoothly, we ran into a series of hurricanes the like of which I have never seeng they came one right after the other, vying among them- selves in ferocity and suddennessg the barometer was down to 90f5O on several oc- casions. The otlicers assured me these were nothing out of the ordinary, a fact which was of small comfort to me when I expected any moment to be washed overboard. By and by the sea grew calmer, or perhaps I became ac- customed to the storms which we always seemed to pass through without mishap. Days flew by, we passed through a limpid Gulf Stream, and my thoughts drifted to my approach- f"' ing homecoming. In the midst of all this we ran straight onto an uncharted reef, a small volcanic island. The ship was lost, all the men managed to swim to the island, and there we waited without food or water for succor in any form. S GO 2 CHAPTER IV ,,' On the fourth day we sighted an ap- , , proaching sailg but our momentary Mp--' euphoria vanished when we realized that y I E 'a " it bore the emblem of the local pirates L l . who were notorious for the indignities to I 1 f ' 5 which they subjected their prisoners. The I , 3 L ship turned out 'to be the flagship of their fleet, too discouraged to offer any ,, , resistance, we were carried off and sold I I .. into bondage. Syn-iv , f It was really not so bad as I had ex- ,,I ,I g IQ Ns , pected. I was worked hard during my l i 2,1 y Q.f 'TQ year of captivity, but what I had heard , Ulf, l 'Ia 71 V ' about the cruelty of my masters was -J 'WL I' . somewhat exaggerated. I was rotated, like l l. Lal I X ' crops, from one form of work to another. 'l I l, I , A The hardest time I spent was when I was ii , g l ' chained to a bench on a galley and made W. li, ,ffm g to pull an oar with nine companions un- I ' , 4-571 1 .dl der the eye of an overseer with a tongue- l tl like whip. The benches, however, had , " .W IXNVX been newly furnished with plush cush- .,- , u WJ, - gg ions g and besides, because of m revious Xi ' ' ,,,. education, I was allowed to iivvlbrk out 'S ' X Those of us who were strong and intelligen part of my time in the galley cooking up sugar water for the Queen. Even more pleasant were the days I spent in the salt mines, where except for the irregular hours the work was not difficult at all. t enough were sent into the desert as re- cruits for the local Foreign Legion, in which I served under Colonel Studdiford and Sergeant Iabate for two months. We had no end of excitement when at 3:00 A.M. the blacks would swoop down from the hills in green motor-cars and our crack division of Lancets would meet them in a devastating shambles in which somebody would always come out second best. I was really fairly well satisfied with my treatment, especially since I was continually told that the training I was getting would be invaluable to me in later life, but I saw no immediate prospect of getting away and there seemed to be not much future where I was. I made inquiries and found that before being released from captivity I would have to pass through a series of ordealsg and when I heard what they were, I practically P g Y Q Answer sixteen questions put by eight individual sphinxes in one minute Be able to exert a tractive force of 5 OOO 000 dynes with each little finger Remain awake for ninety six hours and then be able instantly to name the four for five nuclei in the thalamus. -Get ceftiiicates of person- ality, character and interest in work from my super- visors in the salt mines.

Out of the shadows of the pre-clinical laboratories the new, but intrinsically unchanged, third year class donned their white coats and marched in straggling formation to the clinics and the wards. Gone the mystery and terror of life without sub- stance, Medicine without medicine, digestion without excretion, and morbid anatomy without death. In short, gone the anonymity of disease. At last, here actually were the flesh and blood, so long cited, analyzed, dis- sected and invented. The laboratory animal had graduated, not the student, the subject had become human fagain, not the studentj-and the patient had become a sick person feven as the studentj. Where was the control over the material so carelessly wielded for two years. The cadaver did not move or wince if it were stuck, the unconscious cat lent itself willy nilly to the scientific whim, the reagents poured into tubes, responded duly as per text to other reagentsg the glass slide and the pathological specimen when put on the table, lay there, not inscrutable, and passively betraying their character to the red- dened eye of Medicus. But here is a patient, and lo, he talks feven tho, alas, incomprehensively tooj. If he is hurt, his will or his reflexes move him, touch him and he is warm, his circulation works, hurt him and he wincesg discuss him and he listens, uncomprehending, and frightened. When you are through with him, he will put on his coat and go home. Meet him on the street, you will say, "My God, he is human, and he was my patient." What is medicine in the third year. It is a clinic of eight weeks duration with minor exacerbations. It is a chief complaint of the entire third year. It is one continuous flow of lectures fcum examinationsj. It is Science. Turn to higher power. Now what is medicine. It is the diseases of the heart, and Dr. de la Chapelle patiently and painlessly explaining why it hurts or doesn't hurt. It is a dose of digitalis administered to a palpitating povex machine. It is a flight on the wings of the sea-gull P wave on the sea of the E.K.G. X 5 r .51 rw- 1 Q... 'il 1 ff w in 3 i. 1 ,QW X , N1 f 'Linn IHA -- 5 . 5 ...geslli 25.111 2? Or perhaps, from the worm's fthitd year students'j eye view, medicine is a state of pseudo-uremic coma with atypical renal and cardiovascular symp- toms. There is pre-examination polyuria and urgency, hypertension during the first five minutes of each lecture by Dr. Goldring while he asks for the wrong classifications of renal disease, or the exact differences between azotemia and uremia. Here in palpitating silence, none of the usual minute-men volun- teer to enlighten their brethren, and the class dormouse prefers his slumber to the usual quibble. "It's a queer business" is the unanimous verdict of benign Dr. Connery on one hand and the third year show on the other. For here detective work comes back into circulation, with significant clues of blood smears on glass, or dark tales of strange lights before the eyes, doses of arsenic, tinkling bells in the ears, and sudden cascades of nausea with vomiting. In demonstration, an inspired student diagnoses a patient's nationality from a history because it is so romantically overstated, another traces a non-existing spleen to the umbilicusg it is carefully pointed out that chlorotic girls do not have "green sickness" just because they're Irish. In a sense, metabolism is only as secretive as the endocrines make it, for what can be simpler than the interplay of the endocrines! Almost anything. But to restore to concreteness the vagaries of a disturbed endocrinology, there is the story of diabetes. Insulin is not then just a medication, it is the epitome of scientific thought. And the diets,-they are, if taken by the students' who compose them, at once,-a punishment to fit the crime, and a grim reminder that "this persistent flesh" is not an unearned increment. Obesity then is not the doctor's ornament, if anything it is his monument. Students with sundry diseases of the chest learn of sundry diseases of the chest, and cough in sympathetic symphony to the pneumonias, softly through tuberculosis, and a decrescendo and harmonically with lung abscess, bron- chiectasis, and emphysema. We can almost see the nod, and hear the acknowl- edgment as Dr. Amberson enumerates the symptoms of this or that lung disease,-"That's me." Anxious students check pulse rates, and the lowly postnasal drip ,comes into its own, as a capricious spring and a string of ex- aminations play havoc with the class. And surgery is not the exalted pantomime of the stage. The surgeon, loquacious man, who gives long serious lectures, or who asks penetrating questions,-his tongue as keen as his scalpel. The entire process is deroman- ticized,-the operating room is a deep white pit in the nosiest amphitheatre in the world, where the merely human voice of the lecturer competes futily against the booming, hissing, clanging, and hammering of men at work out- side. The first real operation, too, is casually staged-and an extirpated thyroid adenoma still warm, is passed around while the patient is being sewn up. Wise in the ways of life becomes the third year class in gynecology and obstetrics, particularly after the first clinic. Nervous hands administer intra- muscular injections, or feel for the adnexa with the objective realization, that this is not at all like the textbook description. And even the most calloused is thrilled to hear a fetal heart for a first time. But most incredible of all,- a delivery-and every student present a quasi-godparent. To follow the process from manufacture to production,-pediatrics. "The child is a G-I tract with a loud speaker at one end and no responsibility at the other." The child certainly is a delicate organism which will respond to overfeeding, celiac disease, acute intestinal upset, pneumonia, vitamin defi- ciency or what have you with diarrhea. Here differential diagnosis is a fine rare att and the physical examination a labor of Hercules. In a way, pediatrics becomes simple under the whimsical eye of Dr. Smith, and the student decides he may not refer all his infant cases to a pediatrician. Medical school, finally, is not all in the books and the ward, the third year class decides. It is the extracurricular activity, at which it excels. The card table cardiologists, with a kibitzer to each player, there are the lounge lizards with or without designs on the radiog and there are those who find their relaxation in more taxing pursuits. The A. M. S. and the Bulletin prac- tically owned and operated by the third year class, the elite. Friends of the LeFevre Library, and the William Welch Society pour culture from a bound- less cornucopia. And so there are the quick and the dead in the student body, as well as in the hospital. f El' un:-r 111.-.E !-L nulillil . -- Illlllllllllll HUIIIIIJUU "You matter the rinque text" ' B-6 LABORATORY ,xx gi?

After the preliminary counting of noses and informal services for those who had fallen by the wayside, the year began with the customary discussion concerning the respective merits of Boyd and MacCallum. Armed with copies of the Violet and sage advice from our older confreres, we faced a certain Dr. G. and his minions with nonchalant trepidation. For did we not know that the quizzes "didn't count?" Resolutely we refused to believe it and began to await the dread ordeal of facing lesions heretofore unknown to mortal man. Microscopes at jaunty angles, thrombi were gazed at with studied rapt at- tention. A few hardy souls began to ask questions - the ice was broken. Gross sessions, autopsies, slides, clinical histories, furious note-taking . . . more gross sessions, more slides - colorful residue of "female, forty-three . . . pain in chest . . . downhill course . . . " The weeks passed in a whirl of activity. From time to time our collective ego was casually deflated by a few questions, a slide demonstration or a practical. But no matter. Life went on . . . more slides, more histories. The lifted brow, the silken voice, the dissertations on life and morals became inextricably woven into the tapestry of our daily lives. Our welcome to the second year was enhanced by an introduction to the mysteries of prescription writing and the principles of drug action. Genitives, dosages, principles, tinctures benumbed those who would master all. Dexterous frogs were frantically pursued through the laboratoryg canine subjects gazed at their tormentors in morphinated languor and urinated at the times duly prescribed by tradition. There was the usual dearth of unsmudged kymograph records. On drowsy Friday afternoons a few curious spirits assembled to learn why the experiments didn't work. Precocious playwrights began early to gather material for a certain play. By the fifth week, the class retort magnificent was "You readzis somewhere ?" After Thanksgiving came the realization that drugs did have doses, formulae, actions, limitations and properties discoverable only on oral examination. Under the tutelage of Drs. Wallace and Bodo one realized that there was much he did not know but also much he had learned. The second trimester introduced us to wonders of bacteriology and the new director, Dr. Thomas Francis, Jr. He came with an agreeable innovation in the form of a miniature broadcasting system complete even to a sponsor and theme song, "Am I Blue?" Shades of Loeffler! p Dt. Klosterman early endeared himself to us with his snappy presentations and welcome narratory digressions. "Now let me tell you. a little story . . . " The laboratory: forests of pipettes, white-capped seas of media tubes, fingers and faces of varied hues after a session with the stains. Guinea pigs, mice and rabbits by the hundreds, so it seemed, were coddled, fed, injected, bled and autopsied that we might know some bacteria are dangerous. Our throats revealed organisms of wondrous nature, unknown to the compilers of great textbooks. just to make things interesting, the last few weeks were occupied with un- knowns. Bedlam was brought to Twenty-sixth street on a Saturday afternoon. Barrels of broth and mountains of agar failed to entice organisms from under cover of a stubborn pleomorphism or just plain cussedness. The proceedings were enlivened by requests for bizarre media and eager speculation concerning "what have you?" . Notions of bucolic week-ends and uninterrupted hearts sessions during the third trimester were dispelled before Christmas by the announcement that the comprehensive examinations were to be given in May instead of in March. The widespread sense of disappointment was soon softened by an acceptance of reality and the rationalization that this would offer an opportunity to "really study" the first year work. The second trimester found '41 coming of age. We walked jauntily through the hospital corridors, pounded patients on the wards, a few flaunted white coats - real clinicians! Talk of instruments filled the air . . . "yes, but when you go into practice . . . these ophthalmoscopes have a triple-distilled ear- piece that enables you to . . . " Maturity was upon us. The third trimester: rounds of lectures, electives, frantic communion with long neglected notes. The Class of 1941 stood at the halfway mark, on the threshold of greater things to come. . .

So proud, so Phi Beted, so thoroughly sated With graduate pride in ourselves, We all raided Charley's, exchanged Father's barleys For tomes to repose on our shelves. Oh you tomes, heavy tomes, that have made mental gnomes Out of brilliant young scholars like us, Forebeat in the future, oh spare us the pain Of wearing our foggy, edematous brain In a cruel intellectual truss. That depressing collection was filled to perfection With rattling boxes of bones, Which we sneaked through the subways with feelings of guilt, To frighten the folks in our homes. From then on our week-ends were nothing but book-ends, How we looked, how we booked for exams! How we spied at a slide 'til our lacrimals dried, At slices of embryo hams! ' v Who'd ever have guessed that the process of thought Could have dulled our sensoria so To erstwhile frivolities dear to our heart. Fun seemed so important, so very apart, So drowned in the medical How. Milton Freiwald Remember the gray slabs, the Shearer's, the stools In the room where the skeletons sway, Where professional tools over corpses, like ghouls, So wielded in surgical play. And hark back to Chemistry's intricate maze, The problems that knocked us all flatg The butyric breeze and the weak knocking knees As we went to our soul-searing chat. You stray cats and dogs and you poor pithed frogs, Unwilling preceptors of life! Our sympathy's buried ,neath volumes of fact About how the Various parts of you act. You added to our mental strife. And long before we had digested all that, And with one mental foot in the grave, Came Biostatistics and Clinic. Anat. To complete the interment for all the brave. That all with knowing that many must fail To conquer the ultimate goal, But striving while hoping and praying our name Would be in the year's final poll. It's been tough, very tough, but we've got the right stuff, For though we keep hitting the floor, We'll turn up fighting each fall, sure as fate, 'Till they hand us our sheepskins and show us the gate And say, "Don't come back here no more".

RIMER President Alumni Arrociation The medical school demands much of its students -- high standards of scholarship for admission, unceasing study during the college four years, with very little time out for recreation. The pressure of study becomes greater and greater as the years go by. There are, however, worth while compensations, the contacts one makes with brilliant and able leaders in their field. The friendships with one's classmates are abiding in their influence. One cannot but admire those who unselfishly devote their lives to the advancement of science. Contact with such men is stimulating. One's ideals and ambition should be raised by study under the guidance of such instructors. Some few students, from time to time, will continue work in the research departments of the college. The great majority, however, aim to practice medicine in the field. Only a few have special gifts for research. Your medical school has undoubtedly aroused in you a desire to keep up your studies. The diploma received at graduation does not close the chapter. It is only an introduction to the great field of medicine. The open book lies before its graduates. Scientific medicine undoubtedly is making great progress. One needs to be continually reading to keep abreast. But reading is not enough. Discussion, exchange of ideas, listening to papers read by men whoare pioneers, is most helpful. We need the encouragement and stimulation of personal contact with men who are achieving to call forth our own best efforts. Not only scientific standards, but high regard for our profession is essential to real satis- faction in the practice of medicine. ' The support you give your school in forward looking movements cannot but be a source of gratification to you in years to come. The man who leaves medical college without loyalties and without friend- ships that are enduring has made poor use of his opportunities. He is likely to look upon the practice of medicine as a business - and a poor business chance it is for most. He has missed the big idea of real returns in life. The doctor should be a leader in his community and stand for worth while attain- ments. Usually he does. When he sells his birthright for a mess of portage, often glaring headlines announce his sordid failure. So, keep your faith in yourself and your profession. Courage and optimism are real assets in achieving success. When you graduate, hold fast to your friendships and the inspiring ideals you have built up. The Alumni Association was formed to keep you in close contact with your Alma Mater. Both you and N. Y. U. College of Medicine benefit from your membership - you by continuing worth while associations, the College by your loyal support. BEGIN N INGS OF THE OLDEST HOSPITAL IN THE UNITED STATES CLAUDE E. HEATON, M.D. In 1649, when the tyrannical and bigoted Peter Stuyvesant ruled New Amsterdam with an iron hand, eleven present or former members of the board of Nine Men representing the people, remonstrated to the home gov- ernment about the condition of affairs and asked for certain improvements. Among the requests made at this time was one for a hospital. "There is," it was noted, "occasionally, a flying report of an hospital and of asylums for orphans and for old men but as yet not a sign of an attempt, order or regula- tion has been made about them."1 Their High Mightinesses, the Lords States General of the United Nether- lands, and the privileged West India Company answered the petition of the people of New Netherlands for a hospital by stating that "The Company's circumstances admitted of building neither of an hospital nor orphan asylum, which are not very necessary there as yet." Incensed, by the petition made directly to the States General, the directors of the West India Company in a private communication to Stuyvesant char- acterized the petitioners as "silly people-at least the majority of them-who have been badly misled by a few seditious persons who seem to leave nothing untried to upset every kind of government-pretending that they suffered under too heavy a yoke."2 On December 12, 1658, surgeon jacob Hendrickson Varrevanger, petitioned the Provincial Council that a hospital be established for sick soldiers who had been billeted on private families. He was sorry to learn "that such sick people must suffer much through cold, inconveniences, and the untidyness of the people who had taken the poor fellows into their houses where bad smells and filth counteract all health-producing effects of the medicaments given by him, the surgeon. Death has been the result of it in several cases and many deaths will follow." Facilities were needed also for the sick negro slaves owned by the West India Company. Varrevanger suggested that the negroes should be attended at the expense of the company but the soldiers were to pay out of their pay and rations. He was directed to look about for a suitable location and for a steward or nurse and then report to the Council. On the twenty-third of the month Hillatje Wilbmch, a midwife, was ap- pointed as matron of the proposed hospital at a yearly salary of 100 florins. Opened prior to july 1660, this institution became known as the old hospital or the Five Houses and was sold by the government in 1680 for two hundred pounds, after it had become unserviceable and better buildings had been provided. This, the first hospital on Manhattan Island was indeed the first hospital in what is now the United States? From that time on a place was provided in New York for the poor and the sick, a place which corresponded in func- ' fContinued on Page 1645 VIOLET STAFF Stanley L. Lane Editor-in-Chief Paul D.

Wallace Arthur M. Wright if H If IED ll if U R lf H Il N K S As we come to write these final words in the fifteenth volume of the Medical Violet we realize that it is the last opportunity for us to say au revoir. We do not wish to call it good-bye for we look forward to many happy meetings at subsequent class day exercises and class reunions. As we come to the close of our formal medical education and examinations are over, we have a breathing spell, and have time to reminisce. For the past four years we have all worked together with this final goal in mind. At times the hours have passed slowly, but in reviewing the course as a whole it is remarkable how short a time it all seems. ' We cannot help but make one general observation of the period, it is of the great change that has taken place. Ours was a class of transition, and as we review each individual course, we see many new faces among the faculty, and many changes are noted in the curriculum. Although we as individuals did not have anything to do with this, we nevertheless feel that we are leaving a more superior school than the one we entered. Some unfortunate occurrences have taken place, particularly the deaths of several members of the faculty. The misfortunes started in our second year with the death of Dr. Arthur Mandel. Then in our third year we lost Dr. Wyckoff. In this last year there have been six faculty deaths, and just as if it had been planned by the powers that be, in order to show the ubiquitousness of death, a member of each six departments has been chosen: Dr. Harold Senior, Professor Emeritus of Anatomy, Dr. Alexander Fraser, Past Professor of Pathology, Dr. Lucy Sutton, Professor of Pediatrics, Dr. john Douglas, Professor of Surgery, Dr. Carl Boettiger, Clinical Professor of Medicine, and Dr. William Park, Professor Emeritus of Preventive Medicine, and a past Professor of Bacteriology. Our stay has been marked not only by death, but also by birth -- we have seen the beginning of the Medical Bulletin, and have watched it grow to an important position as an organ of expression of both faculty and student ac- complishments and ideas. O We wish to take the opportunity to thank those through whose help this publication has been made possible, the art work and photographic set ups have been done by our Art Editor, Alexander Maybarduk. For the planning and organization of the book and contents we thank Ely Lazarus, our Associate Editor, and his entire staff. Our Managing Editor, Mortimer Iger, is the one who made the book financially possible, and in this he has been assisted by the advertising staff. The grinds have been written by the staff under the able direction of Paul Vella, our Grinds Editor. The caricatures have been drawn by our Assistant Art Editor, Charles Wise., Bill Weisman, the chairman of the Photography staff, is one to whom we owe a great deal of thanks, for his aid, both in taking many excellent pictures and in printing and enlarging the photo- graphs. The entire photographic staff has done a great deal of work, and without them it would have been impossible to have completed the book. We have also been extremely fortunate in getting the cooperation of the faculty, and of the office, especially Miss Fragoletti. Dr. Claude Heaton is deserving of special mention for his article on "The Begirmings of the Oldest Hospital in the United States". He has shown in this article, which contains many facts ferreted out by much research and published here for the first time, that Bellevue Hospital is really the first hospital in the United States, a fact of which we can all be proud. The copy of the Oath of Hippocrates which appears on the first page is reprinted by permission of the Arlington Chemical Company. The silhouettes which appear in several places in the book are reprinted from a publication called "Medical School Days", by permission of the Dios Chemical Company. Our suggestion to them is that they change the title of the booklet to "Medical School Daze". We are indeed indebted to Miss Turk of' the Arthur Studios, and to the entire Arthur Studio personnel for their cooperation and advice. And lastly, but most important, we wish to thank Benjamin Grossman of the Laurel Process Company for his invaluable aid, not only in publishing this book, but also in assisting us with suggestions and many excellent ideas. We submit to you the Medical Violet, and sincerely hope that you enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed editing it. STANLEY L. LANE THIE S'lVl.llDIENlVS9 ASSOCIIMI-IION i In the sixth year of its existence the Students' Association continues y to perform a function often unreal- ized by the student. Established in 1935 with the building of the Wyckoff Memorial Lounge, and named in honor of our late Dean who encouraged the founding of the organization, the Association has since served to integrate the social life which is a necessary part of medical school and has aimed to pro- mote student welfare. It is guided by the Student Council which meets weekly for consideration of policy and action, and which convenes monthly with the Faculty Sub-com- mittee on Student Welfare. To this committee, Dr. George Wallace, . chairman, Drs. Emanuel D. Friedman, john Mulholland, and R. Keith Cannan, the Students' Association owes a debt of profound gratitude for its wise and sincere counsel and deep insight into student problems. Estimating an annual income of about 353000, derived largely from the collection of dues and of lounge rental fees, the Student Council adopted a tentative budget at the beginning of the year in which 351500 was allotted for the publication of the Bulletin and Violet, 31000 to the Upkeep Fund for future replacements in the Lounge, S5115 for cleaning the drapes, and 3300 for miscellaneous expenses. At the time of Writing actual figures are not available, but these represent the general distribution of the funds of the Association. Although at present writing the Council can report on little more than half a year's activity, the following items may be mentioned briefly as representing its activities during that period. CLASS OF 1939 STUDENT COUNCIL Walter Dolgin, Prerident Stella Chess, Trearurer Paul Unger Samuel Kaufman CLASS OF 1940 George Beekman, Jean Wolfson Charles Speer Secretary CLASS OF 1941 Fred Evans Donald Badner David Mayer CLASS OF 1942 Robert Pye Milton jucovy Raymond Marcus Working under the efficient guidance of Irving Abelow the House Com- mittee continued its function of preserving the physical unity of the Lounge, maintaining the order, and supplying the many unseen services which provide for the success of my social affair. New coat-racks were acquired and as- sembled, relieving the former confusion and congestion of the cloak room and making available space which is to be converted into a ping-pong room. Encouraged by the success of the Curriculum Committee in the past years, the Council continued this committee under the experienced chairman, Milton Tetris. This committee assembles the comments, criticisms, and suggestions of the various classes pertaining to the curriculum, and presents this re- port to the faculty. In the past the various departments have been very cordial in their reception of the report, and suggested changes have been instituted to the benefit of all, attesting to the value of this committee asian aid to the administration in curriculum planning. Realizing with other leading educational institutions that the refugee prob- lemrwas the concern of all humanitarians, the Council appointed a Student Refugee Aid Committee whose aim is to raise funds for the maintenance of refugee students admitted to this country on scholarships which have been made available in various colleges throughout the country. Cooperating with the Student Council are representatives from all organizations at school, and the Student Council at New York University College of Dentistry. Faculty members acting as advisors, are Drs. Emanuel D. Friedman, Irving Graef, Homer Smith, and Howard Taylor, ,Although at the time of writing this group is young, its activity has been .notable and promises success in the achievement of its goal. . S Notable among the improvements of the year must be mentioned the long awaited new linoleum in the Lounge, the electric clock, a gift of the N.Y.U. Alumnae Club, which graces theeLounge at the entrance to the Green-Room, the new coat-racks acquired through the zeal of Stanley Kaye of the second year, and the new metal furniture gracing the students' room in OBS .... including beds with mattresses! . . . for which the present and all subsequent fourth year classes thank Dr. Studdiford. The Concert Bureau through the efforts of Jerome Gerstein continued to supply the student body with tickets to various recitals about towng and the newly formed basket-ball team, resplendent in council-supplied uniforms, engaged with various college teams, 'sometimes.winning. The William Welch Society, affiliated with and supported by the Students' Association, continued its exploration into various aspects of medical history, presenting several in- teresting seminars in conjunction with .various departments. The question of cooperative purchasing of instruments and books was discussed at length in council meetings and a committee was appointed to contact various cooperative :Ez , purchasing groups in colleges throughout the country. The report of this com- mittee is not as yet available. Another question of similar interest is the one of interneships, which concerns each fourth year class from year to year. In an attempt to acquaint the student body with the problem a committee was formed to determine the status of interneships in New York City and various other cities. Action of any sort by the Student Council must await the final report of this committee, at which time any recommendations will be discussed with the administration. Another problem being discussed in council at the time of writing is the question of increasing the Funds available for Student Loans and Scholarships, but as yet there is no specific information available. These brief items, then, represent the activities of the Student Council, but in no way does this indicate the amount of time and consideration given to the discussion of these problems by the council, in addition to the amount of effort required for the planning of expenditures for the greatest possible return. This year, as in the past, the greatest problems of the Association have been its finances and the collection of the dues, which are vitally necessary for the maintenance of the Lounge and the Association publications. But in addition to the financial problems there are the many problems of student welfare, indicated in the foregoing paragraphs. Many of these problems are beyond the scope of one academic session, and therefore can only be approached in the course of one year, with the final action being taken by succeeding councils acting on the reports of those preceding it. It is only by the spirit of cooperation which exists between the members of the Association, and be- tween the Association and the Administration, that from year to year the aim of the Students' Association governing all actions of the Student Council is "the fostering of student fellowship and the encouragement of corporate student activities". In the undertaking of this program the Student Council of the year 1938-1939 wishes its successors good-luck. WALTER DOLGIN Prer.

A-Q, f' ,, ALPHA OMEGA ALPHA The first chapter of Alpha Omega Alpha was organized on August 25th, 1902 by six seniors at the College of Medicine of the University of Illinois as a protest against the low standards of medical education prevalent in the local institution. At that time, requirements for entrance into most medical schools consisted of the equivalent of a grammar school education and such standards which did exist were loosely enforced. It was the aim of the or- ganizers that an exclusive honorary medical fraternity would by its prestige further honest scholarship and the highest standards of medical education. The Delta Chapter at New York University was granted its charter on December 10th, 1923. The basis for membership in the Delta Chapter is the same that governs all other chapters,-high scholarship and satisfactory moral qualifications. The aim of the chapter is to maintain and extend the spirit of intellectual honesty and so to uphold the traditional service and influence of Alpha Omega Alpha in the medical profession. In the past year, The Delta Chapter was particularly fortunate to have two outstanding men as guest speakers. As lecturer at the iirst open meeting of the year, Dr. Robert F. Loeb, Professor of Medicine at the College of Physi- cians and Surgeons, Columbia University, addressed the chapter on "The Adrenal Cortex and Addison's Disease". At the annual dinner held at the Hotel Vanderbilt, the guest speaker was Dr. John F. Fulton, Professor of Physiology at the Yale University School of Medicine. The subject of his address was "The Hypothalamus and Autonomic Function". The open meeting held early this year was an innovation in the activity of the chapter. The enthusiastic approval voiced by members of the chapter, members of the faculty, and student body indicated its success. It is the hope that these open meetings will be continued in the future.

Wright 'john Wyckoff WIIILILIIAM WIEILCIHI SDCIHETY This year marked the Tenth Anniversary of the William Welch Society, organized in 1929 by a group of students for the "development and advance- ment of interest in medical history and Culture among medical students". Dr. Welch, then at johns Hopkins, was much touched by this token of affection and esteem coming from the students of the Institution where he had started his career as a medical teacher. He wrote: "Your new society may be expected to stimulate that interest in the history of our profession which has been such a delight in my own life, as in the lives of so many members of the profession. Historical interests and the his- torical attitude of mind are not merely graces and adornments, they are actual assets in making good doctors and in contributing to the enduring, intellectual satisfactions of the medical life." During this decermial year a special effort was made to realize the aims of the society and the expectations of Dr. Welch. Evening meetings, conducted by student speakers, were held in conjunction with two departments. The first was devoted to Personalities in Pediatrics - Jacobi, Holt, Czerny and Pirquet, and the History of Infant Feeding. The second, in honor of Dr. George Wallace, who has been faculty advisor of the society since its inception, dealt with the history of several of the most important drugs in medicine- morphine, digitalis, quinine and salvarsan. Drs. Charles H. Smith, George B. Wallace, and others representing their departments, gave the discussions. Thanks to the hospitality of Dr. and Mrs. McEwen, an interesting and en- joyable dinner meeting was held on the "History of Health Insurance". The Tenth Anniversary meeting of the society was held on March 31, with Dr. Jerome P. Webster of Columbia as our Guest. Dr. Webster's subject was "The Delight of Delving Into Departed Days". Thru the cooperation of the Friends of the Library, a string quartet led by Dr. Gottlieb provided music for the occasion. I r The closing meeting of the year was held on May 24, in conjunction with the College Medical Society, as has been the custom in past years. It was a great honor to have as our Guest Dr. Howard W. Haggard of Yale. The members and their guests dined together before the meeting. We are happy to announce that, thru a gift of Dr. Sidney Licht, '32, the society was enabled to join the ,American Association of the History of Medicine. THE FRIENDS OF THE LEFEVRE LIBRARY The Friends of the Le Fevre Library was organized May 7th, 1937, as a student organization whose sole purpose is to further the interests of the library. The permanent executive committee consists of one member from each of the six active medical fratemi- ties of the college and one from the William Welch Society, plus such additional mem- bers as the Librarian may see fit to appoint. Miss Helen Bayne and Dr. Homer Smith are the faculty representatives on the committee. The annual dance and exhibit sponsored by the Friends was held on November 12th, 1938, and proved to be an outstanding social event. The Friends completed the year's work with a musicale featuring Dr. Gottlieb's symphonic group, and a sale of medical literature for the benefit of the Library.

Chapter of the A.M.S. has con- tinued to function as an organization of service to the student body and as a means of broadening the social and cultural life of the school. During the year the A.M.S. has presented the school with a ping-pong table and set, has started the campaign for a student loan fund for students in financial need, and has presented several prominent speakers to the student body. Outstand- ing meetings of the year were those addressed by Dt. Siegtist of johns Hopkins and by Dr. "Mal" Stevens, Professor of Orthopedic Surgery at Yale and Coach of the N.Y.U. football team. The A.M.S. has also been working to find some means by which the students can set up a cooperative buying arrangementg and to obtain facilities for athletic recreation for students desiring this. Thirty members attended the 5rd National A.M.S. Convention in Philadelphia at Christmas time and participated in the educational, social and organizational meetings there. 2 AMlIERllCAN ILIEAGUIE IPUR IPIEACIE ANID IDIEMOCIRACY The New York University College of Medicine Chapter of The American League for Peace and Democracy has continued its function of providing a forum for student discussion of current affairs. As the past year has been one of frequent crisis in many parts of the world, interest in the regular meet- ings and guest speakers has been keen. At the beginning of the year, the Czechoslovak situation loomed large, and was informatively discussed by Miss Eleanor Brannan, city chairman of the League. England's Foreign Poliqf was the topic treated by james Xlifechsler, well known editor of The Nation. Experiences on the Spanish fronts were described by a doctor recently returned from active medical service there. Moving pictures were shown depicting China's struggle against the Japanese invader. Nearer home, the menace to our free institutions raised by Nazi propaganda was described by an eye-witness of the Madison Square Garden mass meeting of the German-American Bund. The League has also attempted to aid in the crystallization of student opin- ion. To this end, a poll of the student body was conducted to ascertain the feeling on vital points of American domestic and foreign policy. In addition, before the November elections a round-table discussion was held, at which representatives of the various parties presented the case for their platforms. Social functions were not neglected. A well attended New Year's Eve party ushered in 1939 with much revelry, and a benefit dance for Spain was equally successful. r OFFICERS Prefzdent .............. .,........... .R uth Benedict Secretary ........ ......,....

Attendance at the weekly seminars conducted by the members of the faculty has shown that the students also felt the need for additional psychiatric instruction. This year the weekly seminars have been particularly interesting, they were Dr. Paul Schilder "Self Orientation and Mental Hygiene", Dr. Frank Curran "Introduction to Psychiatry", Dr. Endre K. Brunner "Psychology in Gyne- cology", and Drs. Frank Bromberg and Sylvan Keiser both spoke on "Criminal Psychology". Monthly evening meetings included a talk by Dr. George Draper on "Psychological Influences in Peptic Ulcer", Dr. Theodore Reich on "Straight Psychoanalysis", and a short discussion on "Psychiatry in Education" by Dr. Edward Liss. Early in the year the club voted and sent a letter of confidence to Dr. Karl Bowman upholding his administrative policies. CHRISTIAN A. HERTER SOCIETY The Christian A. Herter Society was organized some years ago by a group of students working in the various research laboratories of the college. The purpose of the society has been to acquaint the different laboratory groups with the problems under investigation and their progress. This has been ac- complished at monthly meetings by workers reporting their original investiga- tion to the society and its guests. This year a committee has been appointed which will endeavor to publish these reports for the general distribution to the college. Membership to the society is limited to students who have satisfactorily participated for at least one year in the laboratory activities of the school. Associate membership is extended to sophomores, allowing them to attend the meetingsg but the reporting of papers is limited to full members only. During the past year the society has met at monthly intervals in the Le Fevre room of the library. The program has included papers by: WALTER BOEHM-"Insulin Sensitivity" IRVING OCHS-l'CHSC Report of Strongyloidesn. SEYMOUR RINZLER-"Liver Fats". WILLIAM YANKIVER-"Healing of Wounds with Cod Liver Oil". JULELS C. ABELS-"Hemolytic Anemias" SAUL SHERRY-"Vitamin C" The officers of the society consist of jules C. Abels as chairman, while Saul Sherry, Marvin Stern, james McCormack and Walter Boehm comprise the Executive Committee. 51JE110IxX P9-111V IDZJQA 119119119151 9119135 11113 19c1u19 FL 931099 zagmoumg 11911915 PISA 9 931099 QQJHQSOA 'Q SQIJBLID 1101119 A 'H 119q1V 19189118 SSIJBIID 1119101711 'g AJUQH 191119125 '125 591111113 JUUAQNTUS 51111111 s931n1g 'H 113191 P1011PP113S 'E-I 11191111125 JSJBQIIS 'W ugmpg Ipssng 9 u1a11119H Hassng '5 91192113 1191111111 11121111125 1p1eq0N 'f 9Ae1sn9 Auaamgaw 'S pnmpg UHIIIHODW 'S lmwv 988 I CII-IHSI"IHV,LSf-I HEI.I.c1VI-ID JSQJQCIS 512111011 L p1sc1A1:1g qdasof asog 111109 OQLIIOH ounzg gmasgd L1c19s0f Z1761 10 Ss'v13 011121113 'f 11A91puV 119151 'D PWMPZ-I 2311119101119 'N pnampg I?6I HO ssv'1j somf 'H SIT8IS1U'BJS P1011VH 'S 'P91:I 01761 10 ssv'1j 6Q6I 10 SSV13 P1111259'I 'L 11091 93091 9 S1f10'I 31119051 'V 921099 uosuqof 'V PQJJIV :119c1dnH 'I 191.1113 A9nH 1nq11V BIDOJUUH HJ JQQQH UOSJBQSUD '9 mug 1111-1119 'I Svwoql xog p1umoH 19qsH 'H UOUJIVI IQSIIBCI '9 11919113 H1.v1.1r19v,1 NI sz1111.v11:1 IIELLCIVHD VHJTV 9132900141 sn11nf s5p191p1919W sapeqj ou1p11aqu1o'I qc19s0f M9111 11191111125 191mg 'g 1111215 911103919 1p119p915 19919 'W sauref JPJBQUISH 'f JJQQJQH 1951215 19punx91V -:I 1p1z1111039W 'V samef Anug omqug Jasseslg 'H 910110911 .L Aleaq 1111215 119-10C1 '.L 1111111105 93013 qdasof 11121103 'g qdleg uu11191o3 UQJJBM SAAOJJEQ 'N pgmzq 191111121 'N 11191111125 01111111-11121 'N 111131111125 muvg 'H PUOUIAEH 9881 clacmnog LLINIIEILVIIH VWSIS VHcI'IV IHcI 1 PHI DELTA EPSILON FOUNDED 1904 Mortimer D.

Dr. Park immediately 'procured two horses and a goat and began the preparation of the first American made diphtheria antitoxin. His early work in diphtheria was later augmented by the utilization of toxin-antitoxin in immunization, and later, toxoid. ' He is noted too, for many more contributions to Bacteriology. Together with Dr. Collins, by means of agglutination, he demonstrated a separate strain of Dysentery organisms. With Dr. Willians he first demonstrated a definite new type of Pneumoccus, later called Type III. Under his guidance much work has been done by his associates in Scarlet Fever, Typhoid Fever, Poliomyelitis, and in investigating the value of B.C.G. vaccine. In 1900 he became full professor of the new department of Bacteriology at our medical school, a position which he held until he retired in 1956, hav- ing served, in spite of his many other duties, as acting Dean of the Medical School for one year after the death of Dean Le Fevre in 1914, until Dean Brown was appointed. At the time of his death he was director of the Bureau of Laboratories of the Department of Health in New York City, Professor Emeritus of Preven- tive Medicine at New York University Medical College, Visiting Bacteriol- ogist to the Willard Parker Hospital, and Consulting Bacteriologist at Beth Israel Hospital, the State Department of Health, and the Federal Health Service. He was a member of many American and European Societies, Past Presi- dent of the American Association of Pathologists and Bacteriologists, The American Association of Immunologists, and The American Public Health Association. He was Vice-President of the New York Academy of Medicine, and one of the few of his countrymen to become an Associate Member of the French Academy of Sciences, and to receive the honor of a Knighthood in the Royal Order of Isabella Catolica for his aid in the public health problems in Spain in 1915. In 1936 the William Hallock Park Laboratory was established and dedicated in his honor, and at the dedication of this laboratory, President Franklin D. Roosevelt wrote to Dr. Park, "Your contribution to medical progress will continue to benefit the people of New York, of this nation, and of the world long after this splendid laboratory has crumbled to dust." The millions of children in America's schools protected from the ravages of the dread Diphtheria, -mainly through his efforts, are indeed sufficient evidence of his service to humanity. tion but not always in spirit, to the xenodochia established in the medieval period for poor and infirm pilgrims. Out of this faint beginning evolved Bellevue Hospital and the greatest municipal system for the care of the sick in existence today. just which hospital in the United States is the oldest is of very little im- portance but the contentions of those who would deny this honor to hospitals which first started as almshouses are somewhat specious and historically un- sound. Almshouses in colonial America were just as much real hospitals in the modern sense of the term as any other institutions established for the care of the sick. The almshouse in New York, the oldest municipal hospital in the United States, was the first hospital established in New York to treat as well as shelter the sick and to teach clinical medicine, as the following data, much of which is here presented for the first time, would clearly seem to indicate. After the Old Hospital had been abandoned the Almshouse was located on Broad Street just north of Beaver Street, but in 1701 this was sold to the high- est bidder. After 1701, a third Almshouse was located on Wall Street under the supervision of the Dutch Reformed Church. In 1714, Elizabeth Burger maintained a shelter for the poor when Andrew Roulson, blacksmith, being "very sick and weak and an Object of Charity" was sent to live under her roof. That the word almshouse and hospital were used interchangeably by the city fathers in the contemporary records is clearly indicated, as for example, when in 1699 at a Common Council held at City Hall it was "ordered that the Mayor Agree with Some person for the Keeping of An Hospital for the Main- tainance of the poor of this Citty upon Ye most East Terms that may be and also that he hire A house Suitable for that occasion." Early in the year 1756 the Almshouse erected in the Commons on the site of the present City Hall was occupied and Dr. john Van Buren was placed in charge of the infirmary containing six beds.4 He was succeeded about 1765 by his son, Dr. Beekman Van Buren, who served as physician until the out- break of the Revolution. He again became physician after the Peace of 1785 but resigned his position in 1784. During the period of reconstruction following the Revolution there was com- plete lack of unanimity in the medical profession of New York. The former leaders of the profession who had been associated with the medical school of Kings College had not been particularly patriotic. A new group of younger physicians had grown up. Of these Dr. Nicholas Romayne was the most ener- getic and able. In 1787, Dr. Romayne established a private medical school, teaching anatomy, practice of physic, chemistry and botany with such success that "he drew heaters from distant places, even from Canada." To promote his institution, the corporation ofthe city of New York committed to Dr. Romayne's charge "the sick in the Almshouse and the Bridewell, whose dis- eases are registered, together with daily reports of the symptoms, the prescrip- tions, and the effects of medicine, for the farther improvement of the students at physic.'i5 During the winter sessions, clinical lectures were delivered every Saturday on the most important cases. In 1788 and in 1789, Dr. David Hosack attended the several courses of in- struction and the lectures delivered on the cases occurring in the Almshouse. Dr. Valentine Seaman served as resident physician at the Almshouse where it is said that "he discharged his duties most worthily, aided by the practical acumen of his preceptor, Dr. Romayne."6 Hosack in 1790, and Seaman the next year, left New York for further study at the University of Pennsylvania. According to Dr. David Hosack, "the Almshouse was attended by Dr. Ro- mayne, Dr. Benjamin Kissam and by Dr. William Moore as physicians and by Dr. Post as surgeon of the establishment. Under their united care, this infirmary was rendered a profitable school of medicine and surgery, while the sick received the benefits of physicians distinguished for their abilities and edu- cation, and by whom they were attended in rotation."7 So crowded was the Almshouse in 1787 that arrangements were made for the 'accommodation of the sick poor in the barracks behind the Almshouse, and rooms were also set apart in the Bridewell for the sick. The barracks had been erected in the time of the old French and Indian wars in 1757 along the line of the present Chambers Street. In 1784, they had been leased to various families, and in 1790 the buildings were finally sold and removed. The city fathers had no intention of supplying free medical care in the Alms- house Hospital unless the patient was destitute. In 1786, it was ordered that the treasurer "demand of Lewis D. Flynn payment for his subsistence and Doctors Bill while he labored under the venerial Desease in the Alms House." Veterans of the late war were treated no better for in 1785 it was "ordered that Nicholas Waysal, a disabled soldier QS: Pensioner of the U. SQ of the Line of this State be received into the Alms House on his assigning to 8: em- powering the Keeper to receive his Pension and retain thereout the Expenses of his Cure 8: Maintenance." In 1793, William Davison, a patient, entered a complaint against one of Dr. Romayne's students named john Henry. The patient stated that "this day he received' personal abuse from said Henry, which appear'd by evident marks in his face-whereupon Resolved that Doctor Romayne be desired to inform Henry of the same and advise him to behave himself more orderly for time to come, and that if he does not come forward and reply to said charge at the next meeting of the board they will proceed against him accordingly." As Henry did not appear to answer the charges against him, it was "Re- solved that he be no more admitted to come within the walls of these build- ings as a Student of Physic and Surgery."8 In july 1795, Dr. Romayne resigned his position at the Almshouse Hospital as he intended to go abroad, and Dr. Valentine Seaman was duly elected to take his place. On his visit to Europe, Dr. Romayne was admitted as a licen- tiate of the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh, a compliment which Thacher states had never before been paid to any American. Dr. Romayne was president of the New York State Medical Society for three successive years. Chiefly through his efforts the College of Physicians and Surgeons was founded in 1807. To Dr. Romayne, associated with Moore, Kissam, Post and Seaman, is due the honor of having attended the sick poor in New York's first hospital and of having formed "the first practical establishment as a Hospital and Dispensary under the corporation of the City, which existed in the state."9 Not only the Almshouse the first place to teach clinical medicine in New V af , V VV f J --VV-- -V ,. .fV:.- --- -.. .Y.--IV-f-:"-'---W V -V- H- 4-'-lA . . - ,.,i .

Here the first lying-in ward in New York was opened. 'Fur Valcnliniu Kuiud York City, but it was the first place to open a lying-in hospital. A new Alms- house had been completed in 1796 on Chambers Street facing the north side of the Commons. In 1798, a severe epidemic of yellow fever swept the city. Many expectant mothers lost their husbands. Their pitiful condition aroused the sympathy of Dr. David Hosack. Through his efforts the New York Lying- In Hospital was incorporated in February, 1799. A place was secured at No. 2 Cedar Street, but there is no evidence that it was ever used for patients. In- stead, arrangements were made for the use of a ward for obstetrical cases in the New York Hospital, but no patients were admitted prior to August, 1800. In the meantime the Almshouse Hospital was utilized for the destitute mothers. We read in the Medical Repository for 1799 that: "A lying-in ward has been established in the Almshouse of the City of New York. The cases which occur there are numerous enough to answer the pur- pose of public instruction. Accordingly, there is delivered a course of lectures on the obstetric art, including the anatomical, physiological, and practical parts, by Valentine Seaman, M. D. As this establishment is particularly and ex- clusively devoted to the education of fenmley, it will be easy for women who practice, or intend to practice midwifery, to avail themselves of the excellent opportunities which are hereby held out to them." The following year Valentine Seaman published the first book to appear on the subject of midwifery by an American author. On the title page he calls himself Physician Extraordinary to the Lying-In Ward in the Almshouse. The little volume bears the quaint title, The Midwives' Monitor and Motberr' Mirror, and the contents are based upon the course of instruction given the previous winter in the lying-in wards of the Almshouse. Thus, to the forerun- ner of Bellevue Hospital belongs the honor of establishing the first wards in New York for expectant mothers and of giving the first hospital instructions to women in the aft of midwifery. ' In 1794 the State government represented to the City government the neces- sity of providing a place of isolation for persons afflicted with yellow fever. The City purchased the lease of five acres of ground at Bellevue. There was a country house on this land which was made ready for use as a hospital. The first physician placed in charge, according to Carlisle, was Dr. john McFarlane. Late in August, however, Dr. Alexander Anderson, Arnerica's pioneer Wood engraver, became resident physician at Bellevue Hospital at a salary of four dollars a day. Dr. Anderson kept a diary from 1795 to 1798. The original manuscript is now in the Columbia University Library and has never been published completely. In this diary is a vivid description of Dr. Anderson's experience at Bellevue during the yellow fever epidemic of 1795. Writing of his first day at the hospital, he said:10 "Aug, 24. Behold me in a new station and my mind in a state of confusion and perplexity. At 10 o'clock I call'd on Dr. Smith and after sitting near 2 hours, stepp'd into the Chair with him and away we posted to Bellevue. - After instructing me in my duty and introducing me to the family and patients, he shook me affectionately by the hand and departed. There are 6 patients. The Family consists of Mr. Fisher, the steward, and his wife, Old Daddy, the gardener-an old negro, a black nurse and two white ones. I spent the after- noon in putting up medicines andearranging matters." Almshouse, N. Y. by W. Hooker, Sculptor. 1817. This is the first print of the almshouse at the foot of 26th Street, the present site of Bellevue Hospital. First building to be called Bellevue Hospital. Erected 1826 at che foot of 23rd Street, thru efforts of Dr. Hosack. 1 O The young doctor was less than twenty-one years old at the time. Once there were as many as forty patients under his care. He passed three months among the yellow fever patients and witnessed above a hundred deaths but he managed to escape the infection. He assisted in opening four dead bodies. During the great yellow fever epidemic of 1798, Dr. Anderson was again employed in the hospital. I-Ie left it in a few days however for he had lost his wife and child. In a short time, followed the loss of his brother, father, mother and almost all of his friends. These calamities affected him so sev- erely that he never returned to the practice of medicine but devoted the rest of his long life to the art of engraving. In 1816, the Almshouse of Chambers Street was given up and the inmates were moved to the new Almshouse at Bellevue. We now wish to clear up the confusion which exists concerning the first separate hospital building erected at Bellevue in 1826. "It was proposed by someone," wrote Carlisle, "to erect a fever hospital at Bellevue-it is said by one to have been his honor the Mayor, and by another to have been Dr. Hosack .... "U As a matter of fact the honor belongs to Dr. David Hosack. In 1819, typhus fever had appeared in New York and the following year Hosackls most important work was published entitled: Obrerwztiom on Febrile Cofztagion ami on the Means of Improving the Medical Police of the City of New York. Hosack urged upon the Board of Health the necessity of some permanent Provision being made for the sick, commensurate with the increasing population of the city. A committee was appointed to find a site for such an institution. "A spot of ground, connected with the public prop- erty at Bellevue, was found to possess every advantage that can be derived as it regards air, water, and other means of accommodation." As the result of Hosack's efforts a new building was erected at the foot of Twenty-third Street within the Bellevue Establishment. On December 5, 1825, the Common Council approved and adopted the fol- lowing: "Resolved that the Building lately erected at Belvue, and intended as a Hospital shall hereafter be called and known by the name of Belvue Hospital.

PASTEUR'S COUNSEL TO THE YOUNG PHYSICIAN? "WHATEVER YOUR CAREER MAY BE, DO NOT LET YOURSELVES BECOME TAINTED BY A DEPRECATING AND BARREN SCEPTICISM, DO NOT LET YOURSELVES BE DISCOURAGED BY THE SADNESS OF CERTAIN HOURS WHICH PASS OVER NATIONS. LIVE IN SERENE PEACE OF LABORATORIES AND LIBRARIES. SAY TO YOURSELVES FIRST: 'WHAT HAVE I DONE FOR MY INSTRUCTION? AND, AS YOU GRADUALLY ADVANCE, 'WHAT HAVE I DONE FOR MY COUNTRY? UNTIL THE TIME COMES WHEN YOU MAY HAVE THE IMMENSE HAPPINESS OF THINKING THAT YOU HAVE CONTRIBUTED IN SOME WAY TO THE PROGRESS AND TO THE GOOD OF HUMANITY. BUT, WHETHER OUR EFFORTS ARE OR NOT FAVOURED BY LIFE, LET US BE ABLE TO SAY, WHEN WE COME NEAR THE GREAT GOAL, 'I HAVE DONE WHAT I COULD '." "' Excerpt from the response made by Louis Pasteur on the occasion of the celebration of his seventieth birthday, in December 1892 at the Sorbonne. THE PILLARS or MEDICINE Of PARACELSUS "HE WHO WANTS TO KNOW MAN must look upon him as a whole and not as a patched-up piece of work. If he finds a part of the human body diseased,'he must look for the causes which produce the disease, and not merely treat the external effects. Philosophy-the true perception and under- standing of cause and effect-is the mother of the physician. In this under- standing rests the indication of the true remedy, and he who is not able to understand will accomplish nothing. , 2? Ik Bk "NATURE- not man-is the physician . . . Try to enable yourself to follow Nature and she will be your instructor. Learn to know the storehouse of Nature and the boxes in which her virtues are stored up. The ways of Nature are simple, and she does not require any complicated prescriptions. ,xxx "A PHYSICIAN who is true to his own higher self will also have faith in himself, and he who has that faith will easily command the faith of the people. BF 214 Pk "TO CURE DISEASE is an art which cannot be acquired by the mere reading of books, but which must be learned by experience. Neither emperors not popes, neither colleges not schools, can create physicians. They can confer privileges and cause a person who is not a physician to appear as if he were one, but they cannot cause him to be what he is not."
