Candy Robinson, the first senior resident, years later recorded his recollections of life in The Rockefeller Institute’s hospital during the two and half years in which he lived and worked there. He portrays a serious group of young men linked by a common interest in clinical research and working together in great amity. “Life in the hospital was full of joy,” he wrote. “A few patients in whom we had special and intensive interest; laboratories such as none of us had ever before seen in any clinic; varied interests both within and without the realm of medicine; the East River with its great span of light at night, and its lapping waters; a blazing hearth about which we gathered after dinner.”
