If it wasn't for Dr. DeBakey and his skills, many people wouldn't have lived through their cardiac trouble. What I didn't realize was that his skills also brought about improved medical library service in the world, the establishment of the National Library of Medicine, and basically made it possible for me to work these last 16 years of my library career. Here is the tribute that the National Library of Medicine wrote about him:
Dr. Michael DeBakey, Medical Trailblazer And Longtime Friend Of National Library Of Medicine, Dies At 99
