After the war he returned to his studies, earning two Masters Degrees in Hospital Administration and Administrative Medicine at Columbia University, New York. He served as an administrator at New York Cornell Medical Center, the Veterans Hospital in Brooklyn, and for more than 20 years at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York.

Format: Hardcover
This book was hard to put down once I picked it up. The author brought to life the hardships and accomplishments that the two very different missionary Josephs faced everyday living in a leper colony in Hawaii in the late 1800s. He gave this insidious disease a humaness that touched my heart and took away some of the steroetypical fears that many of us have. The conversations between various characters in the book were like opening doors into who these people really were. You felt like you knew them well. The contrasts were also interesting as in the incredible beauty of the island vs the incredible ugliness of the disease. By the time you finish this book, you will have such a respect for these two men, Damien and Dutton, even though you learn that they are just as human as we are with their own worries, fears and doubts, too. I highly recommend it. It's been passed around my office and the reactions have all been positive.

Fantastic is the only word to describe this book. It is one of those books that puts the everyday annoyances in perspective. If only more individuals would realize that doing their own job well will not only gives them a great feeling of accomplishments but lead to great achievement. Ordinary individuals doing extraordinary things, and not counting the sacrifice produce great men. Wow! Now Damian is known throughout the world and he never sought fame. I am buying more copies to give others.
