"The lifetime of Henry S. Plummer was devoted to the welfare of mankind, a great life, worthily lived, an example to us all."
— William J. Mayo, M.D., 1938
Henry Plummer was a young doctor from a small Minnesota town when he was invited to join the growing Mayo medical practice in 1901. Within a short time, he began making innovations that helped shape the future of Mayo Clinic. He created the dossier medical record, which set a world standard for documenting the care that patients receive. He envisioned the first medical building – beautiful as well as efficient – to support the integrated group practice of medicine. He invented medical devices and advanced the understanding and treatment of thyroid diseases.
Using dramatizations, archival films, photos and interviews, this film provides a fascinating portrait of one of the most unforgettable characters in the history of Mayo Clinic.
