SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 14: DANIEL WILLIAMS

Profile America for the 14th day of Black History Month.  Dr. Daniel Hale Williams was a prominent surgeon in Chicago at the end of the 19th century.  He founded Provident Hospital, the nation's first interracial hospital, and established the first school for black nurses.  In 1893, he saved the life of a man who had been stabbed, by performing one of the earliest known open-chest heart operations.  Dr. Williams received many honors and became the only African-American among the 100 charter members of the American College of Surgeons.  Today in the U.S., there are 888,000 physicians and surgeons, nearly 6 percent of them African-American.  This special edition of Profile America is a public service of the U.S. Census Bureau, conducting the 2010 Census beginning April 1st.
