Remembering Dutch

Yesterday, a patron called us looking for the videotape of the 1999 memorial service for Dr. Julian S. "Dutch" Reinschmidt, longtime faculty member at OHSU School of Medicine and guru of continuing medical education. Thinking about Dutch, I remembered my favorite characterization of him, given by Jim Kronenberg in an oral history interview: Dutch was "Superman in a bad brown suit."

Jim Kronenberg, Communication Director for the Oregon Medical Association, was interviewed in April 2006 as part of the "History of 20th Century Medicine in Oregon" project, jointly supported by the OMA, the OMEF, OHS, TFME and OHSU. Some interviews have been conducted both as part of the OMA/OMEF project and the OHSU Oral History Project.
