He was on the internal medicine faculty of the University of Minnesota between 1947 and 1953, where he worked in the Laboratory of Physiological Hygiene directed by Ancel Keys. This laboratory traced its roots to the famous Harvard Fatigue Laboratory, which was operational in Boston from 1927 to 1947. It was in Minnesota that Chapman first combined his interest in cardiovascular medicine and exercise physiology and used invasive techniques to study the cardiovascular responses to exercise in normal human subjects and in patients with heart disease. / In 1953, he was recruited to be Chief of Cardiology in the Medicine Department being molded by Donald Seldin at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. It is interesting that Tinsley Harrison had preceded Chapman to Dallas, having been Chairman of this same department from 1944 to 1950. Chapman created the first Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory at Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas, and he also founded the Pauline and Adolph Weinberger Laboratory for Cardiopulmonary Research at UT Southwestern. In 1961, he was awarded one of the National Heart Institute's earliest Program Project Grants, entitled 'Response and Adaptation to Exercise,' which is still active today." – Jere H.
