Though tired after replacing a hip and intertrochanteric fracture that afternoon and evening, I was surprised to see an excerpt from my long-ago article—An African Summer—in the Winter 1966 issue of Yale Medicine. My only concern was seeing the article being carried in the Archives section [Autumn 2001]. Instead of an excerpt from my article, I was expecting something from the 1740s.

But I’m flattered just the same.
