Letter from William Osler to Lewellys F. Barker

Title:
Letter from William Osler to Lewellys F. Barker
Description:
In this letter, Osler responded to Barker's news that the Hopkins medical school had implemented a full-time requirement for its clinical as well as pre-clinical faculty chairs. He noted that the full-time salary offered was unacceptable, and that the whole-time arrangement would be bad for everyone. Barker, who succeeded Osler as Chair of Medicine, ultimately refused to go full-time, and so had to step down. Osler had earlier protested the full-time scheme as a bad idea, and was angry at the medical school's unfair treatment of his friend.
