In medicine, it is often specific persons more so than "events" which capture our attention. Certain people --- professors, mentors, and friends --- stick with us. Like indelible marks etched in memory, when these names are resurrected, we smile acknowledging their impact. While we can speculate why certain persons had this effect, in all likelihood it was a combination of things that came together. The man, his talents, and his time in history danced leaving us the memories created.
