A History of the Department of Internal Medicine, State University of Iowa College of Medicine, 1870-1958

JAMA. 1958;168(16):2202. doi:10.1001/jama.1958.03000160116027.

This little volume is of special interest because it has been prepared by Dr. Walter L. Bierring, whose life span began almost on the birthday of the College of Medicine of the State University of Iowa. It contains an interesting introductory chapter outlining the history of the College of Medicine and a brief one on the history of the department of internal medicine. The main body of the volume, however, is devoted to biographical and autobiographical résumés of the eight persons who have occupied the chair of the department originally called theory and practice of medicine, which today is the department of internal medicine. These brief sketches offer an interesting portrayal of the progress of medicine during this 90-year period. Those concerned with the management and utilization of the modern teaching hospital should find the description of the Rules and Regulations for the Government of the University Hospital in 1898-1899
