A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Family Medicine Collection - Doctors hold a special niche for most people. It may be the outright need of professional medical support, but it’s more than that. A bond forms between patient and provider based on caring. It is so apparent, we call it one of the “caring” professions. The dedication necessary to become a doctor develops an appreciation by the receiver of the care involved. Throughout history many doctors have attained a high degree of prominence because of their personal and medical endeavors. Walter Reed, an army surgeon, headed a 1900 Havana study of Yellow Fever. Army volunteers were exposed to clothing of victims, not becoming ill. Another group bitten by aedes aegypti species, or inoculated with serum from infected blood became ill.

HUGH WILLIAMSON is the only physician to sign the Constitution. He received a medical degree from the University of Utrecht, Holland, and settled in Edenton, NC in 1776.

When Chiang Kai-shek defeated Chen Chiun-ming, Sun came to govern southern China. George Papanicolaou is famous for the PAP smear based on the fact that cancers produce atypical cells identifiable by study of properly stained samples. The method is most important in early detection of cervical and uterine cancers. CRAWFORD LONG received his medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania, and performed the first surgery using ether in 1842, finally publishing his results in 1849.
