This chapter focuses on the new dean, Stanhope Bayne-Jones, who had been a student and later colleague of Winternitz's at Johns Hopkins. His major interest was in bacteriology, and he happily accepted an offer to head his own Department of Bacteriology at the new medical school in Rochester. In 1932, Stanhope Bayne-Jones, by then dean at Rochester, was recruited to Yale, primarily to be master of Trumbull College and secondarily to be professor of bacteriology and immunology. President Angell was eager to appoint a scientist as master of one of the new residential colleges funded by the Sterling bequest. In discussing his appointment as Winternitz's successor, Bayne-Jones commented that because he was relatively new to Yale he was viewed as neutral, and that no one else would have been acceptable to Winternitz.
