Wright, Adam H.
To: 
Cushing, Harvey
Abstract: 

Wright draws Cushing's attention to Osler's "The Master Word in Medicine," delivered at the opening exercises of the University of Toronto in October 1903, published in Canadian Practitioner and Review of November 1903. He writes of James Henry Richardson, a teacher of Osler's in Toronto. Osler had a close relationship with and lasting influence on Wright's children; he encloses a note from one of them [see CUS417/75.4]. Wright recalls his relationship with Osler, which began in 1879 or 1880 when Wright substituted for Dr. Barrett, Professor of Physiology, at McGill.
