-:inn-si-' v..:gi:4-A-z.aw. Q- .,,.-..,-ms... mpg.-. ...,1.,1.,r. -. -. .., L. D. - With more leisure and increased means, he was now able as never before to gratify his passion for medical history. He soon assembled one of the finest private collections in the country of old medical books, which was at once the despair and envy of his bibliophilic friends. ln 1939, Mrs. Clendening presented to the Uni- versity of Kansas the Hixon Laboratory, one floor of which housed this library and was devoted to medical history, fulfilling a dream of Clendening. Medical history was now established as a regular course in the medical school of the University of Kansas and during the first year, Doctors Sanford Larkey, lohn E. Fulton, Henry E. Sigerist, and Chauncey Leake spoke to the medical students as guest lecturers. A description of this library and the de- partment of medical history appeared in the Bulletin of the History of Medicine, May , 1940. In 1942 Clendening was elected vice-president of the American Association of the History of Medicine and became president on the death Dr. Iabez Elliott. He also organized the Ouivira Medical Society, composed of physicians in the Kansas City area who were interested in the history of medicine. This society became a constituent member of the Ameri- can Association. In addition to the books already mentioned, Clenden- ing published THE CARE AND FEEING OF ADULTS, 1931, BEHIND THE DOCTOR, 1933, and SOURCE BOOK OF MEDICAL HISTORY, 1942, a voluminous and scholarly work which should be in the library of all physicians interested in medical history. Clendening's interest in books and literature extended beyond the range of medical writers. He was intensely interested in the Shakespeare-Bacon controversy and at one ,timer had a very complete bibliographical collection on the subject. He was an avid reader of Dickens and possessed a fine collection of Dickensiana. In his inter- esting and amusing A HANDBOOK TO PICKWICK PAPERS, 1936, he described a trip to the various inns and the countryside visited by Pickwick on his memorable journey. During the last years of his life he became much interested in philosophy and often lamented that he had begun serious reading of Plato first in his fifties when he should have commenced it in his twenties. For two years preceding his death, Clendening gave a course in logic as applied to medicine, and he planned some writ- ings on this subject. Logan Clendening was a man of intense convictions and was never hesitant about express- ing them. Yet he rarely wounded his opponent in a verbal encounter and even those upon whom he turned tables usually joined in the laughter at their own expense. He ,carefully separated individuals and causes, never damning individuals for supporting causes of which he did not approve, or damning causes because' he did not like their champions. His wit was proverbial among his friends, but it did not have a sting or an unpleasant after- taste. He was essentially tender and kindhearted and the carnage and destruction of the present war brought on moods of deep depression. This was reflected in his column for Christmas 1943, in which he stressed the mockery of the words "peace on earth, good will to men" and closed with the thought that his profession had lived up'to the Words of the Master and was binding the wounds of friends and foes alike. Few mothers with sons in the service could read it with dry eyes or without a lump in the throat. Logan Clendening will never be forgotten by his friends. As for his enemies, I don't believe he had any. Generations of past students of the University of Kansas will always remember him, and future students will find evidences of him everywhere. His entire professional life was spent in the service of his Alma Mater and it never had a more loyal son. This article appeared in the Bul- letin of History of Medicine, Vol. 18, page 199-206, July 1945.
