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.

Slavery and the University is the first edited collection of scholarly essays devoted solely to the histories and legacies of this subject on North American campuses and in their Atlantic contexts. Gathering together contributions from scholars, activists, and administrators, the volume combines two broad bodies of work: (1) historically based interdisciplinary research on the presence of slavery at higher education institutions in terms of the development of proslavery and antislavery thought and the use of slave labor; and (2) analysis on the ways in which the legacies of slavery in institutions of higher education continued in the post–Civil War era to the present day. The collection features broadly themed essays on issues of religion, economy, and the regional slave trade of the Caribbean. It also includes case studies of slavery’s influence on specific institutions, such as Princeton University, Harvard University, Oberlin College, Emory University, and the University of Alabama. Though the roots of Slavery and the University stem from a 2011 conference at Emory University, the collection extends outward to incorporate recent findings. As such, it offers a roadmap to one of the most exciting developments in the field of U.S. slavery studies and to ways of thinking about racial diversity in the history and current practices of higher education.

"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.
