From his early investigations, his leadership in the development of the cardiological specialty, his attention to the care of the individual patient, and his role in preventive cardiology, Paul White was the ‘Number One’ cardiologist of the twentieth century. Dr. Paul has ably recounted his accomplishments and given an engaging view of his remarkable personality.—Howard B. Burchell, M.D.

I first discussed heart matters with Paul Dudley White in Leningrad when we were both representing the United States at a major cultural conference. Not long thereafter I had to call upon him to treat me when I had my own heart attack and I have always felt that it was his prudent guidance that helped me to recover. He was a remarkable man and the facts of his life deserve to be remembered.—James A. Michener
