Dear Readers, especially lovers of poetry. One of the most read poets on this blog is Physician Poet John Stone. When I get my site meter report each month, it is clear that people are still loving, missing, and still reading the poems of John Stone. This morning I got this note from Thad.

Thad said...

Thank you for presenting on your blog the poem The Bass. I wanted to share it with a friend and therefore did a Google search for it.

Dr. Stone was my friend, mentor, and fellow cardiologist. I loved him and his work dearly.

I thought you would be interested to know that his course on Literature and Medicine continues to live on, at Colgate University. Professor George Hudson, with Mae Nelson Stone's permission and active help, is now teaching from the syllabus that Dr. Stone developed at Emory University. I had the privilege of attending the course and presenting one of the lectures.
