Abstract

Abstract William Stewart Halsted demonstrated a consistent ability to achieve excellence in ever-changing settings—as athlete, student, private practitioner, innovative clinician, disciplined scientist, and pedagogue. His professional achievements and personal idiosyncrasies detail a fascinating American biography. Recent revelations confirm that his accomplishments as the first Professor of Surgery at Johns Hopkins were achieved against the backdrop of continuing drug addiction.
