The writing of critical history is greatly aided by the perspective that only the passing of time can bring. This was apparent in George Corner's bicentennial history of the School of Medicine of the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Corner critically assessed this school's functions and faculty up to and through the first 40 years of this century, but then his account became largely noncommittal. Even the most confident and sage historian will hesitate to put to paper those judgments that are readily made by recent graduates and other interested parties but too often out of adoration, envy, or pique.
