I am very grateful to you for writing me concerning the late Dr. Warren A. Dennis' son. It would indeed be a pleasure
to have him here on the service in event that he would be interested in coming.
For the last three years we have had straight interns on surgery, and these men are invited here with the idea in mind that
the outstanding man of the group (of seven or eight interns) will be carried on as a Fellow. Anterior to that we had interns
who rotated through the hospital services and I felt under no obligation to carry any of them on unless they were outstanding
people. If, therefore, Mr. Dennis is interested in coming on, it perhaps would be best for him to come here first as a surgical
At any rate, I want you to know that I am very much interested in him and would be glad of the opportunity of talking it over
with you and with him perhaps sometime.
Thank you kindly for bringing the matter to my attention.
With best regards, I am
Owen H. Wangensteen

Dear Mrs. Dennis-
Will you read this letter. It appears to be the same problem as the Johns Hopkins Surgical Dept. The only difference is that
he will be home.
