Biography/History

Barbara Bates (1928-2002) was born on May 5, 1928 in Auburn, New York, where her father was a doctor and her mother a nurse. She died of Alzheimer’s disease on December 18, 2002 in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania. She completed secondary school as an honor student at Hathaway Brown School in Cleveland, Ohio and graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Smith College in 1949. She then attended Cornell University Medical College. She later completed a Master’s degree in history at the University of Kansas.

She remained at Cornell for five years as a resident physician and lecturer and then practiced as an internist in Connecticut. She was subsequently recruited to help create the programs and coordinate with the faculty at the new University of Kentucky College of Medicine. She was recruited by the University of Rochester and remained there from 1968 to 1975. In 1975 she joined the faculty of the innovative School of Medicine at The University of Missouri at Kansas City where she renewed her interest in the history of medicine. From 1981 until she retired in 1996, Dr. Bates was associated with the University of Pennsylvania and the Medical College of Pennsylvania, where she taught and influenced medical students and nurse practitioners. Her leisure activities comprised gardening, bird watching, backpacking and hiking. She was also an opera fan.

While at the University of Kentucky College of Medicine she began to investigate and write about issues for delivering health care and teaching of comprehensive medicine. Her well-known book, A Guide to Physical Examination and History Taking, was published in 1974. It is used mainly by medical students and nurses and has been published in 11 languages. It is still considered a leading text in its field. While in Rochester she became nationally and internationally known as an activist in interdisciplinary health care. She also worked on the conception of the role of nurse practitioner. In 1992, the award winning study,  Bargaining for Life, A Social History of Tuberculosis, 1876-1938 was published.

She early expressed a concern that technology would overwhelm interpersonal care. And that “persistent psychosocial needs went unidentified and unmet.” As early as the mid-1960s she was writing about “doctor-nurse communication, team-work and collaborative practice” to assure better patient care.

In “A Tribute to Barbara Bates, M. D.” by Neville E. Strumpf, PhD, FAAN published in The Chronicle her philosophy was expressed: “Be excellent, be thorough, weigh evidence, don’t be misled, have the courage of your convictions, laugh a lot.”
