This chapter focuses on the deanship of Vernon W. Lippard, a Massachusetts native who had taken the five-year combined medical course in the Sheffield Scientific School, receiving his M.D. degree cum laude in 1929. One of five students elected to membership in the medical honor society, Alpha Omega Alpha, he was also awarded the Parker Prize, given annually to the graduating student “who has shown the best qualifications for a successful practitioner.” During his final year, the first issue of the Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine was published, and it contained two abstracts, based on articles by faculty members, signed “V.W.L.” After graduating, Lippard remained in New Haven for an internship in pediatrics with Grover Powers at the New Haven Hospital. He then went to Cornell for residency training and was the first chief resident when the Cornell Department of Pediatrics moved to the newly completed New York Hospital in 1932.
