DEPARTMENT OF NEUROPSYCHIATRY ESTABLISHED
Dr. A. B. Baker said to me (Dr. Royal Gray) "Dr. McKinley's most outstanding quality was his total lack of personal selfishness." He was always willing and anxious to help and guide the academic and scientific development of his staff and colleagues and took great pride in their achievement. In fact, one of the greatest satisfactions one could obtain was the privilege and pleasure of being able to discuss problems with him and become infected with his enthusiasm and encouragement. Dr. McKinley had not completed his three-volume text on Clinical Neurology. However, Dr. Baker continued with the manuscript in 1945 and published it in 1955 with the inscription "Dedicated to a great teacher of Medical Neurology, Dr. John Charnley McKinley." When it was determined that Dr. McKinley's incapacity would be permanent, a search committee made a thorough survey for his successor. The unanimous choice was Donald W. Hastings.
