Latin: The Foundation for Science

“In my opinion,” said Dr. Zappfe, “Latin and Greek are the most valuable subjects in the college curriculum.  This association is opposed to too much science, and it definitely favors and recommends a cultural education, with Classics as a basis.  Personally, I would unhesitatingly accept as a medical student one who is long on the classics, especially Greek, and short on science.  Physicians should be educated, not trained.” 

Dr. Fred Zappfe, former Secretary of the Association of American Medical Colleges (1940)
