Abstract

Frank Hastings Hamilton was a pioneer in academic surgery. His career involved the development of several medical schools. At the request of Mrs. Garfield, Hamilton was consulted after the shooting of President James Garfield. Surgical thinking at that time did not favor operation for gunshot wounds. Garfield's death reflected the lack of understanding in trauma care during that era. Hamilton's many contributions to medical education shall be remembered.
