Institutions as well as individuals are mortal and so it proved to be for "the Thorndike." The 50 years of its life, beginning in the early 1920s, came to an end when Boston University was put in charge of all the clinical services at the City Hospital and the Thorndike Memorial Laboratory was removed to the Beth Israel Hospital. But during this half-century the Harvard Unit became one of the most productive institutions in America for training leaders in academic medicine.
The book is written in part and edited by Maxwell Finland with primary assistance from William B. Castle and
