Dr. William D. Hay, graduated from Queen’s University: Arts 1914, MA 1918; Faculty of Meds Class of 1921; worked at Queen’s University / Kingston General Hospital as a Pathologist; co-founder of the Kingston Blood Bank, 1942; retired 1957.
Sir William Osler, 1st Baronet, FRS FRCP (July 12, 1849 – December 29, 1919) was a Canadian physician and one of the four founding professors of Johns Hopkins Hospital. Osler created the first residency program for specialty training of physicians, and he was the first to bring medical students out of the lecture hall for bedside clinical training. He has frequently been described as the "Father of Modern Medicine" and one of the "greatest diagnosticians ever to wield a stethoscope". Osler was a person of many interests, who in addition to being a physician, was a bibliophile, historian, author, and renowned practical joker.
Book was published shortly prior to his death; he was age 70.
From the 'Preface to the Eighth edition: In the twenty years that have passed since the publication of the first edition, triennial revisions have appeared regularly, with one exception – to secure protection against an edition pirated in Great Britain, a fifth edition had to be issued not long after the fourth. Comparing the first edition with the present, very little remains of the original work. The essential groundwork has been, as far as possible, my personal experience in hospital and private practice, correlated with the general experience of the profession, as expressed in its literature. To try to keep the book up to date has been a pleasure and an ambition. Adequately to express my appreciation of the generous support accorded by my colleagues is impossible.
