This fascinating book tells the story of the Yale University School of Medicine, tracing its history from its origins in 1810 (when it had four professors and 37 students) to its present status as one of the world’s outstanding medical schools. Written by a former dean of the medical school, the book focuses on the important relationship of the medical school to the university, which has long operated under the precept that one should heal the body as well as the soul. Dr. Gerard Burrow recounts events surrounding the beginnings of the medical school, the very perilous times it experienced in the middle and late nineteenth century, and its revitalization, rapid growth, and evolution throughout the twentieth century. He describes the colorful individuals involved with the school and shows how social upheavals—wars, the Depression, boom periods, social activism, and the like—affected the school. The picture he paints is that of an institution that was at times unmanageable and under-funded, that often had troubled relationships with the New Haven community and its major hospital, but that managed to triumph over these difficulties and flourish. Today Yale University School of Medicine is a center for excellence. Dr. Burrow draws on the themes recurrent in its rich past to offer suggestions about its future.

The entity that became the Yale Law School started life early in the nineteenth century as a proprietary school, operated as a sideline by a couple of New Haven lawyers. The New Haven school affiliated with Yale in the 1820s, but it remained so frail that in 1845 and again in 1869 the University seriously considered closing it down. From these humble origins, the Yale Law School went on to become the most influential of American law schools. In the later nineteenth century the School instigated the multidisciplinary approach to law that has subsequently won nearly universal acceptance. In the 1930s the Yale Law School became the center of the jurisprudential movement known as legal realism, which has ever since shaped American law. In the second half of the twentieth century Yale brought the study of constitutional and international law to prominence, overcoming the emphasis on private law that had dominated American law schools. By the end of the twentieth century, Yale was widely acknowledged as the nation’s leading law school. The essays in this collection trace these notable developments. They originated as a lecture series convened to commemorate the tercentenary of Yale University. A distinguished group of scholars assembled to explore the history of the School from the earliest days down to modern times. This volume preserves the highly readable format of the original lectures, supported with full scholarly citations. Contributors to this volume are Robert W. Gordon, Laura Kalman, John H. Langbein, Gaddis Smith, and Robert Stevens, with an introduction by Anthony T. Kronman.

Explore how American conditions and Jewish circumstances collided in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries In this new book award-winning author Hasia R. Diner explores the issues behind why European Jews overwhelmingly chose to move to the United States between the 1820s and 1920s. Unlike books that tend to romanticize American freedom as the force behind this period of migration or that tend to focus on Jewish contributions to America or that concentrate on how Jewish traditions of literacy and self-help made it possible for them to succeed, Diner instead focuses on aspects of American life and history that made it the preferred destination for 90 percent of European Jews. Features: Examination of the realities of race, immigration, color, money, economic development, politics, and religion in America Exploration of an America agenda that sought out white immigrants to help stoke economic development and that valued religion as a force for morality

"In the 1930s, Tracy J. Putnam and H. Houston Merritt were Harvard neurologists when they discovered Dilantin, the revolutionary anticonvulsant drug that changed the lives of many and can be considered as a breakthrough on a par with penicillin or insulin." "Putnam was a brilliant and imaginative experimentalist, but not always correct in the theories he pursued. Merritt was the practical one, an observer, fact-collector, and recorder of what would now be called "evidence-based medicine." From his early days, Merritt was a popular and remarkable diagnostician. Their careers merged later, when first Putnam and then Merritt became head of the Neurological Institute in New York at the Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center." "Putnam moved to California in 1947 and died in relative obscurity in 1975. He had no intellectual heirs. Merritt flourished and about one-third of all Neurology Departments in the United States were led by his students. Merritt's textbook first appeared in 1955. He was the sole author through the first five editions, accepted some help in the sixth edition, and died in 1979 as it was being published. Together, Putnam and Merritt led the way in transforming neurology from merely diagnostic to therapeutic success." "For the first time, The Legacy of Tracy J. Putnam and H. Houston Merritt: Modern Neurology in the United States will set this spoken history into written form. Beautifully illustrated with historic photographs, Dr. Lewis P. Rowland tells the story of two founders of modern neurology in a clear, engaging and enthusiastic prose."--BOOK JACKET.
