So You Want To Be a Doctor

Abstract

In my 1944 high school yearbook at Calvert Hall,under my picture there is written: “He plans to be a doctor”. This was the first indication of a lifetime series of decisions during my climbing the “nuclear medicine” tree.At that time,Calvert Hall was in the heart of downtown Baltimore,across the street from the main branch of the Enoch Pratt Free Library,and one block away from the Remington bookstore on Charles Street,that I would often visit.I still treasure a book that I purchased in 1944:“The Advancing Front of Medicine”, by George W.Gray,published in 1941.He quoted Sophocles:“Only against death shall he call for aid in vain;but from baffling maladies he hath devised escapes”.
