This memoir seeks to capture medicine as it was practiced in the 1960s in the United States, in particular at the Department of Dermatology of Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center. Although it is impossible to restore medicine to what it was in that earlier period, a standard for practice was established then and an effort at achieving it can yet be made. This account was undertaken in the hope that in the future there will be other models in medicine as meritorious as the hero of this work, Carl Truman Nelson, the Chairman of the Department of Dermatology at the Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center.
