"William Henry Kellar's well-researched account of this unlikely success story chronicles step-by-step the Medical Center's steady march from vision to greatness. The author carefully weaves the Medical Center's growth with the history of this wonderful city in a thoughtful fashion that helps explain the symbiotic relationship between the two. It is a book worthy both of Houston and the Texas Medical Center."-Former President George H. W. Bush and James A. Baker III-- (09/26/2013) This book is a must read for anyone who wants to learn how a great medical center came to be, even after the death of the man whose fortune made it possible. It is a story of vision, thoughtful planning, and most of all, the love for mankind of the M.D. Anderson Foundation trustees. They gave birth to the Texas Medical Center, now the largest medical complex in history.-Richard E. Wainerdi, P.E., Ph.D. President Emeritus--Texas Medical Center-- (09/26/2013) "This important history should have been written years ago. Enduring Legacy enlightens us about the events that developed the Texas Medical Center and made it famous."-Mavis P. Kelsey, M.D. Founder, Kelsey-Seybold Clinic-- (09/26/2013) "While the Story is entertaining, perhaps more important is Kellar's outstanding scholarship and his use of primary sources. Without question, Enduring Legacy is an important addition to the growing historical material on Houston and Texas. Because of the research and the narrative anyone interested in the history of Houston, or of medicine, should buy this book for their collection" -- Southwestern Historical Quarterly, February 2016-- (02/09/2016)
