Medicine is art, science, and method. Its subspecialities have been shaped by distinguished colleagues and friends who paved the way. This history can and should be fundamental for us.
The pioneering work of our predecessors gives us knowledge, guidance, and perseverance.
Illustrious examples of such pioneering clinical scientists we commemorate are Horst Bickel (Heidelberg), Ivar Asbjørn Følling (Oslo), Robert Guthrie (Buffalo), James M. Tanner (London), and Richard Koch (Los Angeles).
