If you could have practiced science in any time and any place throughout history, which would it be, and why?
Without hesitation I would choose to be sitting on the front steps of a certain hospital in Baltimore that had just opened for business in 1889, waiting for a certain transplanted Canadian to come ambling up toward the front doors. As he approached I would rise and doff my hat to him, saying "Excuse me, Sir? I am a graduate of the University of Iowa medical school and have traveled here to offer myself up for study and hard work, so that I may become the type of physician that you would be proud of. Will you give me a chance at a house officer position here? I will not take no as an answer."
Dr. Hildreth, is this the same Dr. Osler who along with Dr. Weber and Dr. Rendu discovered "Hereditary Hemmorhagic Telangeictasia?" Or "Osler, Weber, Rendu Disease" as it is sometimes referred to? Oh, the stories I could tell about that illness.
He is one and the same!
