Biographical Notes

George Neil Stewart (University of Edinburgh, D.Sc. 1887; M.B. 1889; M.D. 1891; Cambridge, D.P.H. 1890) taught physiology at Harvard from 1893 to 1894 and at Western Reserve University School of Medicine from 1894 to 1930, with the exception of four years at the University of Chicago. His major contribution was in transmitting modern methods of teaching and research in physiology to American medical education. He wrote the Manual of Physiology (1895) which became the standard text for students. After 1907 he served as director of the H. K. Cushing Laboratory and was professor of experimental medicine.
