In a century of American radiology, a relatively small number of radiologists have emerged as unquestioned leaders of the specialty. One of those was L. Henry Garland, late of San Francisco, whose multifaceted accomplishments and vigorous personality made him a significant contributor to advances in radiology during 3 decades. The Garland family has endowed an annual lecture at the meeting of the California Radiological Society. This essay is taken from the 1991 lecture, which was an assessment of Garland's significance.
