Carleton Chapman’s tribute to Ancel Keys. 3 December 1971.

Carleton Chapman, Dean of the Dartmouth Medical School at the time, and formerly a part-time member of the staff of the Laboratory of Physiological Hygiene directed by Ancel Keys, spoke to a reunion ot subjects of the MN Business and Professional Men Study, the early CVD healthy cohort study begun in 1947. Chapman’s encomium on Keys at this occasion in anticipation of Keys’s retirement was in personal tribute and gratitude for the influence of Keys in Chapman’s scientific development and research career. For scholars today, it is a major source for understanding in broad context the varied skills and contributions of Keys from a senior academic physician and national medical leader. (HB)
