On newsstands: the life of Howard P. Lewis, MD

At last, the long-awaited article on the life of Howard P. Lewis, M.D., has hit print! "Large and noble lines: the life of Howard P. Lewis, American College of Physicians president 1959-1960" graces pages 24-31 in the Summer 2009 issue of The Pharos. And, it's even available online as a PDF from the Alpha Omega Alpha web site.

OHSU School of Medicine alumnus Madison Macht, M.D., conducted much of his research here at OHSU--both in the archives and in the true storehouse of institutional information, the brains of those in the community who still remember Hod. Regular readers might recall that Macht's research was first presented in audiovisual format during the 2007-08 season of the OHSU History of Medicine Society Lecture series; streaming video of that talk is available here.

As a side note: The attribution on the photos is a little odd; I'm sure the images of the campus shuttle bus and Mackenzie Hall are in our collections, while the portraits of Hod in uniform and Hod as a younger man are less familiar. No matter! The information is all there--along with the emotions that Hod once engendered, and continues to engender, in those who studied under him or worked with him.

Another side note: some of our other photos of Lewis are available in the OHSU Digital Resources Library.
