Presented as the Annual Aaron Brown Lecture
Tulane University School of Medicine
New Orleans, Louisiana
March 17, 1987
Next we have three lectures given on three separate occasions all with essentially the same message. The first I gave as an address presented as the Annual Aaron Brown Lecture, Tulane University School of Medicine, New Orleans, Louisiana, March 17, 1987. Aaron Brown was an alumnus of my own medical school . . . Cornell . . . and he founded the host organization for this lecture, Phi Delta Epsilon. I then placed Dr. Brown in history by pointing out that medicine wasn't the big story then that it is now. Then it was physics . . . especially radioactivity and electricity. The big names of his day that dominated the world of science were Roentgen and Max Planck . . . the Curies, Marie and Pierre . . . and Marconi . . . and Einstein.
I then went on to give a lecture on smoking, which appears after two more title pages.
