"While he lived Harvey Cushing had stimulated a generation of medical students, many of them profoundly, and it was evident that a record of his life, particularly of his early days at Yale, Harvard and the John Hopkins, would prove a source of inspiration to students for many generations to come, as had his biography of Sir William Osler.
