Keen!



Walter's grandfather sounds like a neat guy. Fortunately for his patients he also palled around with Sir Joseph Lister, the guy who came up with the idea of sterilizing instruments before sticking them into people. Keen had been a battlefield surgeon during the Civil War so maybe it's not surprising that he was among the first to adopt antiseptic measures, aka "don't whet your knife on your boot before making the incision." Walter, on the other hand, never troubled himself much with what he referred to as "all that germ crap." Oh, Walter.
