Lewellys Barker came to Johns Hopkins in 1892, assuming the role of Assistant in Pathology under Welch, and in 1897 Associate Professor of Anatomy. He left for the University of Chicago in 1900. In 1905, he returned to succeed Osler as he left for Oxford, becoming director of medicine and physician-in-chief at the Johns Hopkins Hospital.

He discusses the history of the recognition of angina, the pathophysiology of coronary artery disease, various types of angina, the epidemiology of angina and what would come to be called cardiac risk factors, angina's various clinical presentations, associated conditions, theories regarding angina, and the diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of angina" (W.
