To Teach, To Learn, To Serve: The Mayo Brothers in the World

The Mayo brothers, sons of an immigrant, inherited their father's love for exploring new lands, as well as his life-long quest for knowledge. This unique film recalls some of the Mayo brother's memorable trips over a span of 40 years.

We were two, and one could always get away for the purpose of observation and study."
— William J. Mayo, M.D.

Throughout their busy careers, the Mayo brothers took time to make annual trips abroad to seek out the latest improvements in the practice of medicine. The Doctors Mayo visited hospitals and clinics in Europe, Asia, South America and the Antipodes, learning, teaching and making many friends in every country. At home, they hosted surgeons who traveled across the ocean to learn from them. 

This unique film features many photographs from the Mayo family's scrapbooks, souvenirs of their travels, and even Dr. Charlie’s home movies from a trip to Europe. It's a fascinating look at the origin of Mayo Clinic's long tradition of sharing knowledge freely and bringing hope and healing to patients from around the world.
