THE CARL W. EBERBACH MEMORIAL LECTURESHIP


Dr. Carl Eberbach arrived in Milwaukee in 1928, having moved here from his ancestral home in Ann Arbor, Michigan. At the University of Michigan Medical School he had been an Associate Professor of Surgery and was Acting Dean of the Medical School under Dr. Hugh Cabot, one of the pioneers in Urology in this country.

Dr. Eberbach's early beginnings were in the field of Urology, in which he was a substantial contributor to the medical literature in the 1920's. He wrote on many aspects of genitourinary surgery, especially in the field of congenital anomalies. His monograph on renal tuberculosis was considered an outstanding work. His later years in Ann Arbor, however, were in the field of General Surgery, and it was in this capacity that he took up his new work in Milwaukee at the age of 37.

His leaning toward academic medicine was strong, and he maintained a vital interest in our medical school throughout his professional life in Milwaukee. He was Chairman of the Department of Surgery for eight years before the arrival of Dr. Edwin Ellison in 1958, and was instrumental in bringing Dr. Ellison here from Ohio State University.

Dr. Eberbach regarded himself as a clinical surgeon, and his self-appraisal is reflected in his writings, principally in the fields of biliary tract surgery and in the management of breast cancer.
