Historical or Biographical Note
As Assistant Professor of Medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical School from 1928 to 1932 and as Associate Professor from 1932 to 1941, Harrison was known for his outstanding scientific studies on cardiovascular physiology and disease. His book, entitled Failure of the Circulation, was a landmark in clarifying the mechanisms of the symptoms of heart failure. He was also a pioneer in clinical investigation.
Additionally, Harrison served as the first full-time professor and chair of departments of medicine at three schools: the new Bowman Gray at Winston-Salem, Southwestern Medical School at Dallas, and the Medical College of Alabama at Birmingham. Harrison was also the second Distinguished Physician in the United States Veterans' Administration, the winner of the Kober Medal, and the Billings Lecturer for the American Medical Association, among many other honors.
