Description
   Illustrated family medical book.

Newton Evans, MD was among the principal founders of Loma Linda University. He played a vital role as president and pathology teacher for the University (formerly called the College of Medical Evangelists) from 1914 to 1927. A graduate of Cornell University School of Medicine, clinician, and former teacher at American Medical Missionary College in Battle Creek, Michigan, he brought greatly needed credentials and clinical expertise to the fledgling medical school at Loma Linda.

After his long tenure as president of the College, Dr. Evans became chief pathologist and director of laboratories of Los Angeles County General Hospital. He served again as dean of the School of Medicine for two years during 1943 to 1945 until failing health forced him to retire.
