38 Nathan Smith was considered the perfect appointment for Yale so far as his professional qualifications were concerned. 39 Smith did, it seems, have an influence on prayer at Dartmouth; President Wheelock reputedly came from Dr. Smith’s lecture room to evening prayers in the old chapel and gave thanks more or less as follows: “O, Lord! We thank Thee for the Oxygen gas; we thank Thee for the Hydrogen gas; and for all the gases. ”40 At that time Yale was the embodiment of a conservative college based on Calvinist principles.

As he was considered too honorable to be duplicitous, Dwight eventually relented, and Smith never gave anyone reason to question his religious orthodoxy in his lectures. He arrived in New Haven in 1813 accompanied by his two sons, who were to enroll in the Medical Institution and Yale College, respectively. His wife and seven other children remained behind in New Hampshire, as he had been unable to sell his house. The entire family eventually moved into the building on Elm Street that now houses the Graduate Club.

THE FOUNDING YEARS 29 Despite such difficulties and obstacles, the medical faculty constantly strove to raise academic standards. Already in 1818 the professors had recommended to their colleagues in the Connecticut Medical Society that two courses of medical instruction be required for licensure rather than one. But although the society was interested in keeping the standards of practice high in Connecticut, the recommendation was rejected as too stringent. In 1827, however, several New England medical schools and medical societies jointly agreed to raise both admission standards and the level of course work.
