CONTRIBUTION OF THREE EARLY BRITISH SURGEONS TO KNOWLEDGE OF HEART DISEASE

JAMES B. HERRICK, M.D.

The primary motive that has induced me, an internist, to accept the kind invitation to have a share in this special number of the Archives of Surgery is that by so doing I may show my appreciation of, and affection for, Dean Lewis. To have known him as a student, intern, faculty and hospital colleague and congenial companion is to have an abiding sense of his superior ability as a surgeon, teacher and medical leader, and of his genius for making and holding friends.

I trust it may not seem inappropriate to reiterate in this paper the truth that medicine and surgery are, and should be, closely related and mutually helpful, and, as a concrete illustration of the debt owed by medicine to surgery, to call attention to the worth while contributions made to the knowledge of heart disease, a little more than a century ago, by three British surgeons.
