Scope and Content Note

Information regarding books (Subseries 2.1) includes correspondence, research files and drafts related to three books written by Dr. Hurst. The first, Quest for excellence: the history of the Department of Medicine at Emory University School of Medicine, 1834-1986 (1997) details the history of the Emory University Department of Medicine from the founding of Emory College in 1834 through the many challenges of the growth and development of the Emory University School of Medicine and the Department of Medicine.

The second, Living with heart disease, was never published. The files include drafts of three sample chapters that were submitted to the publisher.

Paul Dudley White: a portrait (1965) was written in memory and honor of Dr. Hurst’s longtime friend and mentor under whom he served as a fellow at Massachusetts General Hospital. It was published as the April 1965 issue of the American Journal of Cardiology.
