PROVENANCE: Chandler Alton Stetson Jr., M.D. (1921-1977), Stetson was for five years the Dean of the College of Medicine at the University of Florida at Gainesville and had been Vice President for Health Affairs for 3 years. Previously, from 1958 to 1972, he had been Professor and Chairman of the Department of Pathology at New York University School of Medicine. Stetson was an experimental pathologist in the classical style. His whole career in the laboratory was devoted to questions concerning disease mechanisms, always with a central interest in morphologic problems. His longest preoccupation, amounting to a permanent obsession, was with the mode of action of the endotoxins of gram-negative bacteria; one of his earliest papers, in 1951, identified the role of platelet-leukocyte thrombi in the necrotizing lesions caused by endotoxin. Subsequent experiments led him to the perception of significant analogies between endotoxin reactions and those associated with delayed-type hypersensitivity, and he became more and more involved in the problem of homograft rejection, especially with the question of circulating antibody as a triggering mechanism in rejection. For several years, while on army duty in Rammelkamp's unit at the Streptococcal Diseases Laboratory in Cheyenne, his research shifted into clinical research on rheumatic fever and glomerulonephritis and simultaneously into field epidemiologic studies of streptococcal infection. At one time or another, having acquired skill in operating the electron microscope, he returned to studies of the ultrastructure of sickle cells and some interesting questions about the movement of ameboid cells, which continued to fascinate him for 2 decades. Stetson came into Pathology by an indirect route, after initial training as a pediatrician. He graduated from Harvard Medical School in 1944, interned at the Children's Hospital in Boston, and then spent 1 year in Pathology at Maine General Hospital. This was his last and only formal training in Pathology. He served as fellow in Pediatrics at Johns Hopkins for 2 years, then as research fellow at the Rockefeller Institute for 4 years, then in Pediatrics again at the University of Minnesota, and finally, in 1955, he joined the Department of Pathology at NYU as Associate Professor; 2 years later he was made Professor and Chairman of that Department. He always worked with his own hands, fixed his own equipment, handled his own animals. He had no taste for large-scale team ventures. Nonetheless, his laboratory was always crowded. There were always 2 or 3 young medical students working on problems suggested by Stetson as well as any number of postdoctoral fellows and house officers attracted by the atmosphere of interest and enthusiasm which was always a part of Stetson s presence." â€“ Thomas Lewis.
