Herbert McLean Evans was born on September 23, 1882 in Modesto, California, the son, grandson and nephew of prominent physicians. In 1904 he received a B.S. degree from the University of California, Berkeley. After spending one year at the University of California School of Medicine, he completed his medical education at Johns Hopkins, where he studied with such distinguished individuals as Franklin P. Mall and William Stewart Halsted. Evans published papers as a student (including major contributions to Mall and Keibel's Manual of Human Embryology) and over a period of sixty-two years he authored, or co-authored, over six hundred papers. Following his graduation in 1908, Dr. Evans joined the staff of Dr. Mall's department.
