ABSTRACT

Leonard Rowntree had a distinguished, indeed a spectacular career in medicine. He continued a tradition of Canadian doctors coming to the United States. Osler was one of the first. The list includes Barker, Cullen, Futcher, Campbell Howard, Rown-tree, and many others. I know of no comparable group of clinicians from the United States who have achieved distinction in Canada.

This book is in some respects a patchwork quilt of separate papers written independently and later sutured together as chapters. Despite much unevenness it will be a useful record for future medical historians—as a repository of photographs and portraits of contemporary physicians, if for no other reason. Rowntree has been intermittently among the great and near-great in medicine and in politics. Thus his book is an interesting, though inevitably superficial, view over the great panorama of contemporary medicine during the first half of the twentieth century in the United States.
