Add New Chapter to Iowa's Medical History An award made recently in New York added a late chapter to a story which was big news in Iowa nearly 35 years ago. For "outstanding service to medical education" the Frank H. Lahey i Memorial Award was presented at ] a New York banquet to Dr. Abraham Flexner, 89. The award was sponsored by the American Medical Association, the Association for American Medical Colleges and the National Fund for Medical Education. lowans with long memories will recall Dr. Flexner as the man who precipitated an educational storm back in 1910 with his Carnegie- sponsored report on medical education in the U. S. and Canada. In general, bis report said that most medical schools should be closed • and new schools built: "from the ground up." The state of Iowa was one of the first to.take up the challenge laid down by the Flexner report. The legislature appropriated funds for a new wing on the old hospital building (now East Hall), and Dr. Flexner was asked for advice on its design. Later, the Children's and Psychopathic Hospitals were built on what is now the medical campus atop bluffs overlooking the west bank of the Iowa River. In late December of 19L'2 the Rockefeller Foundation offered the Stale University of Iowa $2'—million for construction of a "full- fledged" medical center if the state would match the amount. The offer was approved by a substantial majority in the Iowa legislature, and the University went on to build its Medical Center. With hospital facilities totalling nearly 1,000 beds, and with Itsss enlists carrying on a continuing program of research aimed at solving I he mysteries of physical and mental illnesses, the SUI Medical Center has come a long way since the days of the Flexner report. Last year alone, for instance,. Iowa physicians referred more than 20,000 of their patients to the University for hospitalix.atio.i and treatment, and more than 30,000 "outpatients" were treated. SCHOOL REPLACES BARN— Paul Criddlebaugh, Moravia farmer, purchased a rural school building Monday to replace a barn des- toyed by fire.
