Collection Number: 1007
Abstract:
The collections of primarily correspondence files were compiled during the period when Owen Harding Wangensteen was head of the Department of Surgery, 1941-1967. During Wangensteen's administration, advances were made in cancer treatment, open heart surgery, and treatment of stomach ulcers. The collection also documents Wangensteen's fund raising efforts for support of Base Hospital 26 during World War II, construction of Diehl Hall, building the book and journal collections for the Bio-Medical Library, History of Medicine Professorship, and providing funding to build the Wangensteen Library of the History of Medicine.

Biographical/Historical Notes

The Department of Surgery was established in 1904 under the direction of James E. Moore (1904-1919). Arthur C. Strachauer who headed the department until 1925 succeeded him. Owen H. Wangensteen assumed the responsibilities for the department in 1926 although he did not officially receive the appointment until 1930. Very few documents exist for the early years of the department. It was not until 1941 that correspondence files were retained.

Owen Harding Wangensteen was born on a farm near Lake Park, Minnesota on September 21, 1898. Although he enjoyed farming, his father urged him to go to Medical School. He entered the University of Minnesota and received his medical degree in 1922 and a Ph.D. in 1925. Until he was appointed head of the Surgery Department he studied surgery in Switzerland in 1927 and 1928.

Wangensteen established a flexible program of training for surgeons that involved 1 to 3 years of training in the laboratory where research skills were developed. Creativity and innovation was encouraged as Wangensteen was keenly interested in developing new methods and better surgical tools.

During Wangensteen's administration, affiliations were formed with a number of local hospitals. This enabled him to expose his students to a broader range of surgical experience than could be given at University Hospital as well as accommodate more interns. The head of surgery in each hospital held a faculty position. These affiliations included the Veterans' Hospital, Mount Sinai, and Ancker Hospital.

Primarily a gastrointestinal surgeon, the collection most thoroughly documents his research efforts such as the Wangensteen gastric tube and the use of gastric hypothermia to treat peptic ulcers. During the period, cancer patients relied on surgery as a treatment for tumors. Wangensteen performed or directed a number of radical operations for cancer including the "second look" program in which a patient would undergo a second operation after a period of years to determine if the cancer was gone. Wangensteen established one of the early cancer detection centers at the University in 1947.

An ongoing concern of Wangensteen and his colleagues was the extent to which surgeons could treat private patients in the University Hospital. The hospital was established for those who would be otherwise unable to pay for their treatment. The extent to which surgeons and other doctors could treat patients was a problem to which the Medical School gave a great deal of attention and policy was created to deal with the matter. The Baker Fund was set up as the means to collect private practice medical fees and make them available for research projects.

The most remarkable work done during this period was in cardiac surgery. C. Walton Lillehei did the first successful open heart surgery in 1952. Clarence Dennis, who developed the heart-lung machine, and Richard DeWall, who invented the bubble oxygenerator, were other members of the team. One of Lillehei's students, Christian Barnard, performed the first heart transplant.

Owen H. Wangensteen retired as Head of Surgery in 1967. A few years before his retirement Wangensteen contracted a debilitating disorder that ended his ability to do surgery. With the assistance of his wife, Sarah (Sally), he developed his strong interest in the history of medicine. Through his interest and energy the History of Medicine Collection in the Bio-Medical Library was established and a chair was created for a Professorship in the History of Medicine.

After his retirement, Wangensteen concentrated his research interests in the history of medicine. He died on January 13, 1981. His successor as Head of Surgery was John Najarian.


Collection Scope and Content Note

The collection is arranged alphabetically by name, organization, and topic. It essentially is Wangensteen's personal papers rather than the papers of the Dept. of Surgery. Therefore, correspondence and date more is comprehensive for projects such as gastric hypothermia and blood substitutes than it is for the pioneering work done in cardiac surgery. Fortunately, Wangensteen believed in writing his staff memos that create a record of the relations in his staff. It is not unusual to find multiple letters sent to his staff or one of his students suggesting areas of investigation that might be pursued in a research project.

The correspondence reveals that Wangensteen was a peerless mentor. He frequently recommended his colleagues and students for speaking engagements, urged them to write articles for the medical journals, and frequently sent them on trips to visit other departments of surgery where he felt it might be of benefit to his proteges. He was unsparing in his efforts to help the international students who trained under him. For examples see Stacy B. Day, Christian Barnard and Noble Maluf.

The collection documents Wangensteen's strong influence in fund raising. The first example is in the files relating to Base Hospital 26, a unit that included many surgeons, doctors and nurses from the University of Minnesota. Wangensteen raised the money for surgical instruments, journals, and other needs of the unit. During one battle, the facilities of the hospital were destroyed leading to another campaign to raise funds. A second campaign spearheaded by Wangensteen was to raise money for the medical research building that was eventually named for Harold Diehl, Dean of the Medical School. When the building was funded, Wangensteen led an effort to place a medical library in the facility. This led to a new interest, a collection of rare and historical books devoted to the history of medicine. In turn this led to another campaign to create a professorship in the history of medicine.

One of the ways Wangensteen raised money was to operate on his private patients for free or ask then to donate funds to the Baker Fund that was used to support surgical research. For the period 1947-66, Wangensteen held a research luncheon to which prominent member of the community would be invited to learn about the current research underway by his staff. Many attending the luncheons were former patients of the Surgery faculty. Through this means donors learned how their donations were used and, with luck, convinced to continue to donate more money.

One of the unusual facets of the collection is the documentation of the problems related to laboratory animals, dogs in particular. The animals were hard to obtain, in great demand, and the facilities for their housing difficult to maintain. Pressure from antivivisectionists is also in evidence. For material on this see Animals (box 4, folder 107).
