"It will never happen that every professor in either the medical school or the university faculty is a genuinely productive scientist. There is room for men of another type - the nonproductive, assimilative teacher of wide learning, continuous receptivity, critical sense, and responsive interest. Not infrequently these men, catholic in their sympathies, scholarly in spirit and method, prove the purveyors and distributors through whom new ideas are harmonized and made current. They preserve balance and make connections."
