Sir William Osler was Regius Professor of Medicine at Oxford 1905-19. Osler demonstrated two cultures, humanity,and science in his practice according to the conventions of his time. As to humanity, his friendliness was therapeutic and for science his accurate observations of symptoms in the alive,and signs in both the alive and dead were more numerous. well described and analysed than ever before.
Born and educated in Montreal, Osler was the first Physician at Johns Hopkins Baltimore and wrote The Principles and Practice of Medicine. This was the foremost textbook of medicine for the first 40 years of the 20th century and brought modern medicine to all the physicians of the World.
