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-
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
