Biography of Mont Rogers Reid

After graduation from The Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in 1912, Mont Reid progressed to become the 16th resident surgeon trained by Dr. William Stewart Halsted at The Johns Hopkins Hospital, serving in that capacity from 1918 to 1921. He moved to the University of Cincinnati with Dr. George J. Heuer in 1922 to serve as his associate. In 1931, he became the second Christian R. Holmes Professor and Chairman of the Department of Surgery at the University of Cincinnati when Dr. Heuer left for Cornell University. Under his leadership, the Department of Surgery at Cincinnati became known throughout the country as one of the outstanding clinics in graduate surgical education. In 1939 he was offered the Surgical Chairmanship at The Johns Hopkins Hospital, a position he declined because of his dedication to Cincinnati, its medical school, and the school of surgery that he had developed there. His premature death in 1943 was a great loss to the medical and general communities and the flag on the City Hall of Cincinnati was flown at half mast.
