Dr. John McCrae wrote In Flanders Fields, the most influential poem associated with World War I. He was a revered professor at UVM and we are proud to count him as part of our rich and deep history. From 1903 to 1911, he served as professor of pathology at UVM’s Medical College, traveling down on the train from Montreal. In his short 46 years, he had established himself as an esteemed physician and professor as well as an accomplished writer and poet.

In this exhibit, learn more about this fascinating man’s life as a physician, poet and soldier. The exhibit will be up in the library‚Äôs Main Hall through December 16th. Also read the Larner College of Medicine blog post on McCrae.
