Arthur Dean Bevan (1861-1943) graduated from Rush Medical College, Chicago, Ill, in 1883, and served as professor of anatomy and surgery at his alma mater from 1887 to 1934. He was also chief of the surgical staff of Presbyterian Hospital in Chicago from 1892 to 1934. Bevan was a major reformer of American medical education, serving as chairman of the American Medical Association's Council on Medical Education from 1904 to 1916 and again from 1920 to 1928. He was president of the American Medical Association in 1918 and of the American Surgical Association in 1932. Bevan's name has long been associated with an operation that he initially described in 1899 for undescended testicle and congenital inguinal hernia. In addition, he is remembered for the Bevan incision, situated along the lateral border of the rectus abdominis and used to expose the gallbladder.
