|"Most institutional histories of medical schools tell the narrow story of the creation and growth of that specific
school and fail to put this story into the broader context of American medical educational change. Fortunately Eric
Luft avoids this typical shortcoming and places the history of his medical school, SUNY Upstate Medical University,
within the broader context of American medical history, from the school’s early nineteenth-century beginnings in
Geneva, New York, into the first decade of the twenty-first century in Syracuse."

and a treasure."

internationally renowned psychiatrist
and philosopher of medicine
|"Deans John Heffron, Herman
Weiskotten, and Julius Richmond
all played major roles on the national
scene, and ... Luft tells their stories well."
