On Thursday, February 23rd at 4:30 pm, the Bernard Becker Medical Library in collaboration with the Center for the History of Medicine will present the 23rd Historia Medica Lecture.

Dr. Robert Grubb

Dr. Robert L. Grubb, Professor Emeritus of Neurological Surgery at Washington University, will discuss the history of neurosurgery at the School of Medicine, and how its neurosurgery training program developed into one of the best of its kind.  Special attention will be given to Ernest Sachs who joined the faculty of Washington University in 1911.  Dr. Sachs was the first American specifically trained to be a neurological surgeon, as well as the world's first physician to hold a professorship in Neurosurgical Surgery.  Also to be discussed are the great accomplishments of Henry Schwartz as one of the premier educators of academic neurosurgeons, and the creation of the modern residency program at Washington University.
