Table of contents What's This?
This collection documents the medical history of the first kidney transplant patient recorded as receiving Prednisone to inhibit organ rejection, in 1960-1961. Dr. Willard E. Goodwin, founding chair of the UCLA Division of Urology and surgeon of record on the case, arranged for transfer of these hospital files to the UCLA Biomedical Library. His reprint file of pertinent supporting literature on transplantation rounds out the collection.
