The publication of the biography of Dr. Howard C. Kelly1 completes the tetralogy of the illustrious men of Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine who built an institution with enviable accomplishments. Kelly was the last of the four to join the distinguished group. His biography has been the last to be published. Harvey Cushing2 was awarded the Pulitzer prize in biography in 1926 for his two-volume recounting of the "Life of Sir William Osler." The story of William H. Welch, the pathologist, who was largely responsible for the design of the Hopkins concept, was told by the Flexners3 in 1941. William Stewart Halsted, surgeon and the most controversial member of the quartet, owes his biography to a one-time pupil and academic associate, Samuel J. Crowe.4 And now, Audrey W.
