It was the first time that the entire corpus of one of Cannon's scientific investigations was challenged. Stewart, a physiologist from the University of Edinburgh who was extraordinarily welltrained in physics and mathematics, proved to be a formidable opponent. In The Way of an Investigator, Cannon wrote: 7 During my long experience in physiological research I have had my share of controversy.

Smith, Loewi was appointed Research Professor of Pharmacology at New York University Medical School. The Loewi affair was but one example from the long chronicle of Cannon's efforts to save refugees from oppression. 15. Ibid, March 3, 1934. 16. Ibid, Jan 11, 1935. 40 Fig. 19. Bernardo A.
