Visceral Circulation.


Series: CIBA Foundation Symposium. Sm. 8vo. xiv, 278 pp. 72 figs., index. Cloth, dust-jacket. Very good. Wolstenholme "was Director of the Ciba Foundation and a "medical ambassador" to the international scientific community. During the second world war Gordon was in charge of distributing blood for transfusions throughout the central Mediterranean and Middle East with the Royal Army Medical Corps, finishing in 1947 as a lieutenant colonel and receiving the military OBE." – Sarah Pulmey, Sir Gordon Ethelbert Ward Wolstenholme, obituary, BMJ, 2004, August 28; 329(7464): p.516. "When the Ciba Foundation opened its doors in 1949, Wolstenholme was behind the desk, with trustees including the proponent of the welfare state, Lord Beveridge, and the Nobel laureates Alexander, later Lord, Todd (chemistry, 1957) and Sir Howard Florey (medicine, 1945). But the greatest guarantee of independence came from the vigour, integrity and style of the foundation's activities. Under Wolstenholme, the foundation set a pattern of cross-disciplinary, intensive and often controversial residential symposia. The pattern worked well because the number of worldwide participants was strictly limited, nobody could escape examination, and chairmen were chosen for their ability to probe and stimulate debate. The presentations and discussion sessions of each symposium were (and still are) edited and published rapidly." – Anthony Tucker, The Guardian, Tuesday 6 July 2004.
