Brain Surgeon.

Brain Surgeon. There can be no doubt that Dr. William Sharpe was a remarkable man. This was evident in his ability to teach and in his diversified interests. He made his own way through medical school by teaching his fellow students, and in later life he established recreation centers for children and for Negro schoolteachers. In his work, his special interest was the treatment of cerebral palsy. At the ripe age of 70 he writes his autobiography. He came by an interest in medicine through example. His father was a Presbyterian minister who had six brothers, all of whom were doctors. In his own family, both he and his two brothers were doctors. It is not surprising, then, that he showed superior ability in that field. There is no greater compliment that one student can pay another than to pay him to teach.

Abstract

There can be no doubt that Dr. William Sharpe was a remarkable man. This was evident in his ability to teach and in his diversified interests. He made his own way through medical school by teaching his fellow students, and in later life he established recreation centers for children and for Negro schoolteachers. In his work, his special interest was the treatment of cerebral palsy. At the ripe age of 70 he writes his autobiography. He came by an interest in medicine through example. His father was a Presbyterian minister who had six brothers, all of whom were doctors. In his own family, both he and his two brothers were doctors. It is not surprising, then, that he showed superior ability in that field. There is no greater compliment that one student can pay another than to pay him to teach. Dr. Sharpe, during his four years in medical school
