This chapter explores how Cornell University Medical College (CUMC) joined with New York Hospital between 1928 and 1934 to construct a new medical center on the Upper East Side, creating a greater integration of clinical, research, and teaching activities. The medical center's cornerstone was set on June 12, 1930. In a volume of the student-run Cornell Daily Sun, G. Canby Robinson, director of the New York Hospital–Cornell Medical College Association, wrote in enthusiastic terms of the affiliation between CUMC and the New York Hospital. His idealism was not just confined to the expansive possibilities presented by the affiliation; much of his correspondence conveyed a deep-seated belief in the power of medicine, not just to heal bodies but also to inspire a love of mankind and of service to humanity.
