The author of this book is a distinguished medical educator who for many years was director of the Mayo Foundation for Medical Education and Research and later, until his retirement in 1966, was director of the Mayo Graduate School of Medicine. Dr Johnson's history of the Mayo Clinic begins with his arrival at the clinic in 1947 and continues to the present. The first section of the book presents the Mayo Clinic as an institution in the post-World War II era. The second part describes the growth of the clinic from its postwar status, and the final section deals with the Mayo Clinic today, ending with chapter 30, entitled "Mayo's Future." A number of accompanying photographs of the clinic and its associated institutions, along with a reasonably complete index, are included.

The book is characterized by its great attention to statistical and descriptive detail and by its consistently laudatory spirit.
