Kerr, H.H.
Cushing, Harvey

Kerr writes that his letters from Osler are brief words of congratulations for published works; letters that mean little to anybody else, but than mean such a great deal to him. Osler was such a busy man and still took the time to encourage the young men around him. Osler served as Kerr's father's best man at his wedding and was a close family friend. It was on Osler's advisement that Kerr studied medicine at McGill. Kerr was flattered to be elected as a member of the Neuro-Surgical Society.
