In 1920 Dr. Leonard Rowntree was invited by Dr. W. J. Mayo to come to the Mayo Clinic as chief of medicine and director of clinical research. A research unit was set up where investigations in metabolic, renal, and hepatic diseases were carried out by Fitz, Wild, Amberg, Snell, Greene, and others. Rowntree suggested to Snell, Greene, and myself that we undertake a study of tests of liver function. It was these studies,1 I believe, that led to a continuation by us of clinical investigations in diseases of the liver and their treatment, particularly those associated with obstructive jaundice. These collaborative studies between internist and surgeon led to better care for the patients and better results in treatment. Snell and I continued our association in the study of diseases of the liver, gall bladder, and bile ducts when we became members of the Mayo Clinic staff.2
