The Schwartzes—Gen and me—and a couple I will call the Wilsons have been friends for nearly a half century. I first came to know Don Wilson as a careful, highly competent general surgeon. Early on, I was put off by what I considered to be his pre-Baconian notions of what constitutes the scientific method, but regardless, we became good friends. Over the years, our friendship evolved into a comfortable intimacy, the more so as the ranks of our social circle became thinned by incapacity or death. At present, Don is 93 years old, 11 years my senior.
