(Macdonnell) Keith, M.D., b. 1885 attended the University of Toronto and was part of the Royal Army Medical Corps (RAMC) in the first World War. Keith also worked for the department of Urology at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, MD. According to John L. Graner, who authored a historical vignette on Leonard Rowntree, while at Johns Hopkins, Keith collaborated with Rowntree, Samuel Amberg and Reginald Fitz. As a result of this previous experience, Keith was ultimately recruited to work at the Mayo Clinic by Rowntree (who served as Chief of the Department of Medicine for the Mayo Foundation). With Amberg and Fitz, Keith became a member of the 'Rowntree Group.' This group was credited with firmly establishing the clinic's research tradition, and with the institution of new subspecialty sections with a stronger research concentration. Keith's work focused on nephrology, hypertension and kidney disease and he published several works in these areas. ; Manuscript Notes : Dr. Norman Mayo Clinic / nephew of W. W.
