Dr. G. C. Willis (1923~2012) was a Canadian physician, medical educator, researcher and preacher. He was a professor of medicine at the University of Hawaii in Okinawa, Japan and the head of the ICU component of the emergency department at the Montreal General Hospital. He could diagnose more than 90% of patients solely on the basis of history, physical examination and simple bedside laboratory tests. His ability in bedside diagnosis and medical education was so outstanding that he has almost become a legendary figure among Japanese clinicians. He wrote two books on clinical medicine. These books, "Bedside Medicine" and "Clinical Laboratory Methods for the Office or Outstation" are not published in English, but their Japanese translations have had remarkable sales. As he had no interest in fame or money, he declined to publish his books in English. He recently agreed to have his books transformed into computer files and allowed them to be downloaded by everyone in the world, in order to help clinicians, especially in developing countries. We now have a web page shown below from which his books can be downloaded at no cost.
