THAT LIFE MAY FLOURISH
The resignation of Professor Winthrop J. V. Osterhout brings deep regret to the many friends he has made during his fifteen years' connection with the University. As a scientist of the first water as a leader among the biologists and physiologists of the day, his departure will prove a real loss to Harvard.
Professor Osterhout's investigations of such fundamental life processes as injury, recovery, and death have brought him to the conclusions which are only now to be made public. In a theory by means of which definite predictions can be made concerning vital problems, he promises a significant contribution to medical science. This research he has carried on with the aid of the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research. When he goes to New York to become head of the Institute, he carries with him the interest and good wishes of the University for the continuance of his success.
