Albert Weinstein received his B.S. from Vanderbilt in 1926 and was Founder’s Medalist in the School of Medicine in 1929. After one year of training at Vanderbilt University Hospital, Weinstein went to Johns Hopkins to complete his residency as the Archbold Fellow in Medicine. He returned to Vanderbilt in 1933 as a chief resident. Two years later he went into private practice, which he maintained until his death from cancer in 1963.

An enthusiastic and popular teacher of medicine, he served as clinical professor at Vanderbilt for over three decades.
