Description

Maj. William C. Borden was an Army surgeon in the late 1800s and early 1900s and a colleague of Walter Reed. He dreamed of much better military medical facilities than existed in those days and was influential in the development of the Walter Reed Army Medical Center. This book is an engaging history-memoir covering Walter Reed Army Medical Center's early history, filled with stories about the people and events that shaped its evolution as an institution. One of the two books published in commemoration of the centennial of Walter Reed Army Medical Center. Facsimile reprint of a 1952 work.
