Who was Arthur G. James?

Arthur G. James once said, “All cancer will eventually be wiped out; there’s no doubt about that, I don’t know how long it will take, but… I’m sure that day is coming.” That belief coupled with his dedication to the idea that cancer patients need separate, specialized care, led James to lobby, campaign, and fundraise for thirty-five years to build a cancer hospital in central Ohio. The official ribbon cutting of the James Cancer Hospital, as it is now commonly known, was Tuesday, January 16, 1990, at which the announcement, much to the surprise of James, was made that the hospital would officially be named The Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Research Institute in his honor. The cancer hospital and research institute are now known as Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute and are part of the Ohio State University Medical Center in Columbus, Ohio.
