Century Memorial

Another widely-known and highly-esteemed New York physician left us with the death of William Kinnicutt Draper. Dr. Draper’s quiet and thoughtful manner, his steady and self-reliant bearing, the good sense and judgment with which he engaged in a discussion, will be remembered by the committees and governing boards of the Century, to which he was a frequent recruit. He was still better known for his wide practice and for his lectures on clinical medicine at the College of Physicians and Surgeons, where he had served as professor of that science during fifteen years.
