Transcript:
This is another lecture, which is typical of transitional lectures. It stakes my history out in very certain terms, but also takes a look, prophetically, at the future based upon what I learned in 40 years as a surgeon and 8 years as Surgeon General. If the user wishes to understand the hundreds of lectures, which follow, this is a good place to assess where I think I had been, what I thought I had accomplished, and what prophetic glance I could give to the future based up past experience.
