Ernest William Goodpasture

Scientist, Scholar, Gentleman

by Robert D. Collins

From the book's jacket:

Visionary, pathologist, consummate investigator, practical idealist, and gracious colleague, Ernest Goodpasture furthered the cause of humanity through seminal discoveries in the research laboratory and exemplary conduct as an academician.

The chick embryo technique for culturing viruses is Goodpasture's best-known contribution to medical science, for which he earned international renown as well as numerous honors and awards. This landmark discovery led to the development of vaccines for yellow fever, influenza, smallpox, and typhus, while serving as an essential laboratory tool for the study of viral and bacterial diseases for more than a decade. His proudest accomplishment was discovering the viral cause of mumps, a disease known since the time of Hippocrates.

Dr. Goodpasture's accomplishments were a key factor in the success of Vanderbilt Medical School, firmly establishing the legitimacy of this adventure in the merging of university and medicine. He served as dean of the school from 1945 to 1950, a time during which the medical school was severely imperiled by fiscal constraints and the personnel imbalances caused by World War II. His loyalty to the university in this role may well be responsible for the survival of its medical school.

In this thoroughly researched biography, Dr. Robert Collins shares the story of one of the twentieth century's greatest scientists whose work shaped the course of virology and that of Vanderbilt University.
