MedChi & The National Anthem

Most people don’t know that September 14 is a special day in American History: It was the day in 1814 that the British bombed Baltimore for 25 hours, but the city stood, and so did the nation. It was also the day that our country’s National Anthem was written.

Most people also don’t know that one of the Medical & Chirurgical Faculty’s founding members had an essential role in it. William Beanes, M.D. is a name that should be more well-known than it is, but we are working to correct that and give him the recognition that he deserves.
