description:

Rentschler matriculated at Indiana University on 9-22-1908 and was graduated from the School of Medicine on June 19, 1912. He also attended Reliance Medical College in Chicago, Illinois.

This image of Rentschler also appears on page 298 of the 1912 Arbutus yearbook. The caption reads "Externe at Joseph Eastman Hospital, Assistant to Joseph R. Eastman. Dutch is the school's chief exponent of the manly art, and were it not for the fact that he has chosed a less lucrative calling, he would probably be a coming white hope."

NOTE: The Joseph Eastman Hospital was apparently located at 331-333 North Delaware Street (southeast corner of Delaware and Vermont) in Indianapolis, Indiana. The building is no longer there. Here is a link to an image of the building held in the collections of The Indiana Historical Society: http://images.indianahistory.org/cdm/ref/collection/dc012/id/11816
