"Alan Mason Chesney was born in Baltimore in 1888. He received his A.B. in 1908 from the Johns Hopkins University and his M.D. in 1912 from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. After serving in the Medical Corps of the U. S. Army during World War I and working as head of the infectious disease division of the department of medicine at Washington University in St. Louis, Chesney returned to Johns Hopkins in 1921 to direct the newly formed syphilis division. His studies in syphilis have influenced all subsequent studies in the area. He became dean of the school of medicine in 1929, serving for twenty-four years.
