About the Cover:

Dear P&S Readers,
I've been interested in P&S history since I started producing this magazine in 1991. I grew up in a part of the country where things were only getting started in the 1800s, which explains some of the appeal. But it's also because the history of this place, especially when combined with the rest of Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center, offers such a rich legacy. Preparing this special issue, which touches on the history of all parts of the medical center, has reinforced pride of place. When trying to squeeze in all important historical highlights of the medical center's first 75 years, I quickly discovered how inadequate 64 pages can be. Instead of a comprehensive and exhaustive history of Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center, this issue skims the history in what I hope is an interesting and informative format.

The longest piece — "75 People, Events, and Contributions Worth Remembering" — contains only 75 people, events, and contributions. Many more can be found in the articles about the individual schools, the hospital, and the psychiatric institute. Not all people and things worth remembering are included in these 64 pages, but it's a start. Many of the individuals mentioned in "75" are no longer living because adding the living legends who still walk our halls would have required many more pages. The editors of the centennial and sesquicentennial editions of this publication can look back at today's researchers and clinicians who leave indelible footprints here.

Several people helped to bring this issue to completion, but none more so than Stephen Novak, head of Archives and Special Collections at the Health Sciences Library. His direct help to the writers and to me, combined with his guidance and his own excitement over history, provided powerful energy to the project.

If anything you read on these pages increases your pride in your past or present association with Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center, I will consider the issue a success.
