Cushing, Harvey

Refers to entry CUS417/97.104. Osler sent Hemmeter a copy of "Querelae Ventriculi Renovatae, 1575" in December 1901. Hemmeter did not realize how rare the book was until a New York collector offered him a large sum of money for it. Hemmeter dedicated his own book, "Diseases of the Stomach," to Osler. When at the Johns Hopkins, he made a point to go the rounds with Osler three times a week.
