Charles Donald O'Malley was often referred to as the leading authority on Renaissance anatomy, especially on the life and work of Andreas Vesalius. But beyond his interest in Vesalius, which dated to before his career officially began, the breadth of subjects in his numerous publications marked him as one of the leading medical historians of his time. He was internationally rewarded with a long list of honorary appointments, awards, prizes, invitational lectureships and offices, and was sincerely mourned in the many obituaries and tributes included in these papers. (Obituary and complete bibliography in: "Medicine in Seventeenth Century England," ed. by Allen G. Debus, Univ. of California Press, 1974. Also see: "Bull. Hist. Med.", 44(5): 477-481, 1970; "Times (London)", April 28, 1970 and many others.)
