Nathan Bryllion Fagin was a professor of English and drama at The Johns Hopkins University and director of the Hopkins Playshop. Alan Mason Chesney was a medical researcher and dean of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine for twenty four years starting in 1929. While dean, Chesney began working on a three-volume history, The Johns Hopkins Hospital and the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine: A Chronicle. Chesney's efforts to preserve the early records that he located in his research resulted in the establishment in 1978 of the archives which bears his name. He also served as managing editor for the magazine Medicine for more than twenty years, was a president of the Medical and Chirurgical Faculty of Maryland, and was president of the Association of American Medical Colleges. He was a staunch proponent for high academic standards in medical education.
