WILLIAM J. MAYO
TLS: "W.J. Mayo," 1p, 8½x11. Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota, 1921 August 9. To Dr. F.C. Larimore, Mt. Vernon, Ohio. In full: "I certainly am sorry that you are laid up with neuritis, but thank the Lord, it is a local affair and you are still well from the very serious condition that we encountered thirteen years ago. Please let me know how you get on." WILLIAM J. MAYO (1861-1939), a surgeon skilled in abdominal, pelvic, and renal surgery, became the Mayo Clinic's chief administrator - although no decisions were made without the approval of William's younger brother, Charles. During World War I, William and Charles alternately served as surgical services consultants to the U.S. Army, and each was commissioned a Brigadier General in the medical-corps reserve at the end of the war. William was actively involved in surgery until 1928, and remained as administrator until his retirement in 1933. Fine condition.
