Four years before Laennec happened upon the discovery of mediate auscultation, Austin Flint was born on October 20 at Petersham in Massachusetts... He was the son of Dr. Joseph Henshaw Flint, a well-known physician and surgeon of Northampton, Massachusetts... Flint said of him: “He never failed to carry the stethoscope during his hospital visits, and the signs of cardiac and pulmonary disease entered largely into his clinical instructions. ” Oliver Wendell Holmes said Jackson was: “thoughtful in youth, but not austere in age; calm but not cold, and cheerful though a sage. ” For the first 3 years after his graduation, Flint practiced medicine at both Northampton and Boston, Massachusetts... White and Dr. Frank H... Hamilton, founded the Buffalo Medical College, which is now the School of Medicine of the University of Buffalo... At Buffalo Medical College, Flint taught the theory and practice of Medicine, as well as clinical medicine, until 1852, when he resigned to become professor of the theory and practice of medicine at the University of Louisville... He was elected to the presidency of the New York Academy of Medicine for the term 1873–1874... In 1883, he was elected president of the American Medical Association, an office which he had not sought and which he did not desire... He had been made chairman of the Section on Practical Medicine in 1850, and in fact had helped found the Association in 1848... Credit for this important addition to the art of physical diagnosis belongs to Austin Flint... He wrote: “So long as signs are determined from fancied analogies, and named from these or after the person who describes them, there cannot but be obscurity and confusion. ” The first time he observed the so-called Flint murmur was in 1859, while examining a patient in Charity Hospital in New Orleans who had well-marked signs of aortic insufficiency and stenosis and in whom a presystolic murmur was audible at the apex... At necropsy, however, the mitral valves were found to be normal... On returning home, he proceeded to retire and without any warning a cerebral hemorrhage occurred... This was followed by unconsciousness, resulting in Flint's death 14 hours later, on Saturday, March 13, 1886.
