Another member of Digamma Pi, Angus Duer is hard and keen, as the name implies. At the top of  his class both in college and medical school, he is soon head of Rouncefield Clinic, in Chicago,  where everything is cold efficiency for financial gain. He is satirized along with Clawson for his  moneymaking tendencies. Older than the other members of Digamma Pi, but bent on becoming a medical missionary of the  Sanctification Brotherhood, Ira Hinkley realizes his ambition in the West Indies and dies of the  plague. Obnoxious to Martin in college and in later life, Hinkley is a forerunner of Elmer Gantry, who  is to appear two years later (in 1927) in the book which bears his name. Through such characters,  Lewis satirized the churches of his time. One year ahead of Martin in medical school, Irving Watters appears as a prominent practicing  physician in Nautilus, and it is he with his wife who introduces Martin and Leora into "Nice Society."

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
