"Plarr’s Lives of the Fellows is a biographical register of the fellows of the Royal College of Surgeons of England. With over 9000 obituaries now available online, and more being added every month, it not only serves as a record of the evolution of surgery, but also an important archive for English social history.

"Victor Plarr (1863-1929), who was the college librarian from 1897 until his death, produced the first two printed volumes which were published after his death in 1930. Nine print volumes were produced with the last one published in 2005. These covered all those fellows (FRCS) who were known to have died between 1843, when the FRCS was established, and 2002. In 2006, the Lives Online website was set up and entries began to be uploaded for all those fellows who had died since 2002.

"In January 2016, the last obituaries published in printed volumes one to nine were put online, a project eight years in the making. However, if you know of a fellow who died before 2002 and is not listed on this website, please do let us know.

"The Lives of the Fellows team continue to add entries for newly deceased fellows on a monthly basis" (http://livesonline.rcseng.ac.uk/, accessed 03-2017).

The genetical theory of natural selection.

Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1930.

The first coherent general algebraic analysis of Mendelian population behavior. The work contains Fisher’s rigorous development of his “fundamental theorem of natural selection”–”the rate of increase in fitness of any organism at any time is equal to its genetic variance in fitness at that time.”

"Fisher's principle is an evolutionary model that explains why the sex ratio of most species that produce offspring through sexual reproduction is approximately 1:1 between males and females. It was famously outlined by Ronald Fisher in his 1930 book The Genetical Theory of Natural Selection[1] (but incorrectly attributed to Fisher as original[2]). Nevertheless, A. W. F. Edwards has remarked that it is "probably the most celebrated argument in evolutionary biology".[2] Specifically, Fisher couched his argument in terms of parental expenditure, and predicted that parental expenditure on both sexes should be equal. Sex ratios that are 1:1 are hence known as "Fisherian", and those that are not 1:1 are "non-Fisherian" or "extraordinary" and occur because they break the assumptions made in Fisher's model.[3] Many eusocial wasps, such as the Polistes fuscatus and the Polistes exclamans seem to exhibit such a ratio at times." (Wikipedia article on Fisher's principle, accessed 03-2017).

Along with Wright (No. 253.1) and Haldane (No. 254), Fisher established mathematical population genetics.

Erwin Bälz: Das Leben eines deutschen Arztes im erwachenden Japan. Tagebücher, Briefe, Berichte hrsg. von Toku Bälz.

Stuttgart: J. Engelhorne , 1930.

Bälz was personal physician to the Japanese Imperial Family and cofounder of modern western medicine in Japan. 

"Bälz taught more than 800 students in Western medicine during his tenure at the Tokyo Imperial University. During his stay in Japan, he treated some of the most influential men in the Meiji government, including Prime Ministers Itō Hirobumi and Yamagata Aritomo. On Bälz' initiative, the volcanic springs of Kusatsu (200 km away from Tokyo) were transformed into the most successful hot spring resort of Japan. He compared the area with the European spa resort of Karlsbad, and felt that mountainous air, as well as the clear waters, was very conducive to health" (Wikipedia article on Erwin Bälz, accessed 02-2018).

Translated from the German by Eden and Cedar Paul as Awakening Japan: the diary of a German doctor: Erwin Baelz (New York: Viking Press, 1932).

The African Republic of Liberia and the Belgian Congo based on the observations made and material collected during the Harvard African Expedition, 1926-1927. Edited by Richard P. Strong. 2 vols.

Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press, 1930.

"The Harvard Medical African Expedition of 1926-1927 was an eight-man venture sent by Harvard University for the primary purpose of conducting a medical and biological survey of Liberia; the secondary purpose being to then cross Africa from coast to coast - west to east - through the Belgian Congo (and other regions) so as to make a comparative study of their Liberian findings.[1][2] Furthermore, the Liberian interior was next of kin to being terra incognita in the West, there having been no previous medical or scientific survey of the region, nor any recorded expedition into the Liberian hinterlands.[1] The Expedition leader was Richard Pearson Strong (Harvard's first Professor of tropical medicine),[3] with the others being zoologists Harold Jefferson Coolidge Jr. (Assistant Curator of Mammals at Harvard) and Dr. Glover Morrill Allenentomologist Dr. Joseph Charles Bequaert, botanist and Washington University Professor David H. Linderbacteriologist Dr. George C. Shattuck, clinician Dr. Max Theiler, and Assistant Ornithologist Loring Whitman (also a Harvard medical student and the Photographer).[4][1] The Expedition was a success and, while its "chief objective was the investigation of tropical diseases, many zoological specimens were collected and the customs of the native tribes were studied."[5] The story of their travels back and forth across Liberia, and reports of the diseases found that ailed the inhabitants, animals and plants was published in the two-volume The African Republic of Liberia and the Belgian Congo: Based on the Observations Made and Material Collected during the Harvard African Expedition, 1926-1927 written by Dr. Strong in a partnership with other Expedition members and Harvard officials" (Wikipedia article on Harvard Medical African Expedition (1926-1927) ).

Human speech. Some observations, experiments, and conclusions as to the nature, origin, purpose and possible improvement of human speech.

London: Kegan Paul, Trench, Trübner & Co, 1930.

Paget believed that speech originated in the "pantomimic action" of the lips and tongue related to the speaker's senses and emotions. This led to his central thesis that hand signs and gestures were the original form of human communication, and that humans had evolved to communicate vocally as their "hands [were] full".  He reviewed the history of devices for speech synthesis, and described his experiments on the nature of vowel and consonant sounds artificially produced by models. The latter part of the book concerned with voice production, the treatment of speech defects, how to teach deaf mutes, the principles of ventriloquism, and how to improve language and spelling.

Fra Mand til Kvinde: Lili Elbes Bekendelser.

Copenhagen: Hage & Clausen, 1931.

Posthumously published autobiography of one of the first transgender women, known prior to the sex change as the Danish painter Einar Wegener. Translated into English as Man into woman: An authentic record of a change of sex. By Lili Elbe. Edited by Niels Hoyer [i.e. E. Harthern]. Translated from the German by H.J. Stenning. Introduction by Norman Haire. London: Jarrold Publishers, 1933.

"In 2000, David Ebershoff wrote The Danish Girl, a fictionalised account of Elbe's life.[35] It was an international bestseller and was translated into a dozen languages. In 2015, it was made into a film, also called The Danish Girl, produced by Gail Mutrux and Neil LaBute and starring Eddie Redmayne as Elbe. The film was well received at the Venice Film Festival in September 2015,[36] although it has been criticised for its casting of an English cisgender man to play a Danish transgender woman.[37] Both the novel and the film omitted topics including [Gerda] Gottlieb's sexuality, which is evidenced by the subjects in her erotic drawings,[38] and the disintegration of Gottlieb and Elbe's relationship after their annulment[39] "(Wikipedia article on Iili Elbe, accessed 1-2020).

“Crohn’s disease” – regional ileitis. With L. Ginzburg and G. D. Oppenheimer.

"Some of Crohn's initial research into the causes of the Crohn's disease was centered around his personal convictionthat it was caused by the same pathogen, a bacterium called Mycobacterium paratuberculosis (MAP), responsible for the similar condition that afflicts cattle called Johne's disease. However, he was unable to isolate the pathogen—most likely because M. paratuberculosis sheds its cellular wall in humans and takes the form of a spheroplast, making it virtually undetectable under an optical microscope. This theory has resurfaced in recent years and has been lent more credence with the arrival of more sophisticated methods of identifying MAP bacteria" (Wikpedia article on Burill Crohn, accessed 1-2020).

"While the causes of Crohn's disease are unknown, it is believed to be due to a combination of environmental, immune, and bacterial factors in genetically susceptible individuals.[6][7][8][2] It results in a chronic inflammatory disorder, in which the body's immune system attacks the gastrointestinal tract, possibly targeting microbial antigens.[7][9] While Crohn's is an immune-related disease, it does not appear to be an autoimmune disease (in that the immune system is not being triggered by the body itself).[10] The exact underlying immune problem is not clear; however, it may be an immunodeficiency state.[9][11][12] About half of the overall risk is related to genetics with more than 70 genes having been found to be involved.[1][13] Tobacco smokers are twice as likely to develop Crohn's disease as nonsmokers.[3] It also often begins after gastroenteritis.[1] Diagnosis is based on a number of findings including biopsy and appearance of the bowel wall, medical imaging and description of the disease.[1] Other conditions that can present similarly include irritable bowel syndrome and Behçet's disease.[1"(Wikipedia article on Crohn's disease, accessed 1-2020).

Le pèlerinage de la Mecque au point de vue religieux, social et sanitaire par le docteur Duguet. Avec un préface de Justin Godart.

Paris: Les Éditions Rieder, 1932.

"Duguet also served as inspector general of health services of Lebanon and Syria under the French Mandate and was responsible for the medical supervision of the pilgrimage to Mecca. The first part of the book gives some historical background to the Hajj, and its roots in the Qur’an. Duguet describes the obligations, restrictions, and propaganda associated with it, the countries of origin of the pilgrims, social classes, gender, means of transportation, their religious ceremonies, the visit to Medina, and the Hajj of Shiites from Mesopotamia (present-day Iraq, Syria, and Kuwait). Part two concentrates on the public health and sanitary problems of the Hajj, the international focus on Muslim pilgrims after the cholera epidemic of 1865 and the 1866 international sanitary conference in Constantinople and subsequent conferences, as the building of railroads and the new Suez Canal accelerated the spread of infectious diseases. Duguet looks at specific pilgrimage years, the last years of Ottoman Turkish administration of the holy sites, and the fall of Sharif Hussein in 1924. Part three considers the Saudi conquest of Hejaz, the roles of Ibn Saud and the Wahhabis, pilgrimage during 1925‒30, and the incidence of cholera affecting the Hajj. The work includes details of daily fatalities in different years, particularly during what Duguet describes as the pèlerinage de l’épouvante (pilgrimage of horror), the cholera outbreak in 1893. The pilgrimage in the late 19th and early 20th centuries took a huge toll on human lives. When disease struck, the loss of life could reach 40 percent of all pilgrims. In 1891, out of 46,000 pilgrims, 21,000 never returned home. Appendices include descriptions of the actions taken to protect pilgrims by the International Quarantine Board of Egypt in implementing the International Sanitary Convention of 1926, and the Beirut and Paris conferences on this subject of January 1929 and October 1930. The book is illustrated with photographs of the pilgrims and their caravans and has maps of the routes most used to reach Mecca" (https://www.wdl.org/en/item/17257/).

Light and life. Address delivered at the opening meeting of the International Congress on Light Therapy in Copenhagen 15. August 1932.

Copenhagen: IIe Congrès International de la Lumière, 1932.

This pamphlet predates both the lecture's publication in Danish in Naturens Verden and the English translation published in Nature, both of which were published in 1933. A German translation appeared in Naturwissenschaften in the same year. Niels Bohr's lecture marks his first detailed attempt to apply concepts arising from quantum mechanics (particularly complementarity) to areas outside physics. "Here, for the first time, Bohr raised a question that was to preoccupy him, off and on, until his death: Would it ever be possible to push the analysis of living processes to the limit where they can be described in terms of pure physics and chemistry?" (Pais, p. 441). Bohr's lecture can be looked upon as one of the foundation stones of molecular biology in that it inspired the young physicist Max Delbrück— who was in the audience when Bohr delivered it— to switch from physics to biology "to find out whether indeed there was anything to this point of view" (quoted in Pais, p. 442). In 1935, two years after hearing Bohr's lecture, Delbrück and two other scientists published a paper on genetic mutations caused by x-ray irradiation, in which they concluded that the gene must be a molecule. The ideas expressed in this paper inspired Schrödinger to write his famous What is Life?, a work which in turn motivated Watson, Crick, Wilkins and other scientists to devote their careers to unraveling "the secret of the gene." Delbrück himself became a leader of what was known as the "phage group" of bacterial geneticists; in 1969, he received a share of the Nobel Prize for physiology / medicine for describing the means by which living cells are infected with viruses. "It is fair to say that with Max [Delbrück], Bohr found his most influential philosophical disciple outside the domain of physics, in that through Max, Bohr provided one of the intellectual fountainheads for the development of 20th century biology" (quoted in Pais, p. 442). Pais, Niels Bohr's Times, pp. 411; 441-42. Judson, The Eighth Day of Creation, pp. 32-35.

When I wrote this entry in March 2020 the text of Bohr's Light and life appeared to be most readily available online in the digital facsimile of his Atomic physics and human knowledge (1958) available from the Internet Archive at this link.

Brave new world.

London: Chatto & Windus, 1932.

Dust jacket of the first edition.

"The novel opens in the World State city of London in AF (After Ford) 632 (AD 2540 in the Gregorian calendar), where citizens are engineered through artificial wombs and childhood indoctrination programmes into predetermined classes (or castes) based on intelligence and labour. Lenina Crowne, a hatchery worker, is popular and sexually desirable, but Bernard Marx, a psychologist, is not. He is shorter in stature than the average member of his high caste, which gives him an inferiority complex. His work with sleep-learning allows him to understand, and disapprove of, his society's methods of keeping its citizens peaceful, which includes their constant consumption of a soothing, happiness-producing drug called soma. Courting disaster, Bernard is vocal and arrogant about his criticisms, and his boss contemplates exiling him to Iceland because of his nonconformity. His only friend is Helmholtz Watson, a gifted writer who finds it difficult to use his talents creatively in their pain-free society" (Wikipedia article on Brave New World, accessed 4-2020).

A study of monkey-malaria, and its experimental transmission to man.

Indian med. Gaz., 67, 301-320, 1932.

Das Gupta and his supervisor Robert Knowles first described Plasmodium knowlesi as a distinct species, and as a potential cause of human malaria in 1932 when they described the morphology of the parasite in macaque blood, and demonstrated that it could infect three human patients (in each case it was used to induce fever with the hope of treating another infection).Also in 1932, John Sinton and H. W. Mulligan further described the morphology of the parasite in blood cells, determined it to be a distinct species, and named it Plasmodium knowlesi in honor of Robert Knowles. [3] 
In the mid-20th century, 
P. knowlesi became a popular tool for studying Plasmodium biology, and was used for basic research, vaccine research, and drug development. It is still used as a laboratory model for malaria, as it readily infects the model primate the rhesus macaque, and can be grown in cell culture in human or macaque blood....

Includes a series of 12 "cinematographic" films on 480 flicker cards. In all the photographs frontal nudity of the female model is covered by clothing, though her buttocks are exposed in some views.

Having previously published a trilogy, Ideal marriage,  Sex hostility in marriage, and Fertility in marriage, Van de Velde explained in his preface that "the work to which [his] life is dedicated" was "the spread of knowledge and insight into the sphere of conjugal relationships and the increase of human happiness thereby." Through Sex efficiency Van de Velde intended to teach women a complete system of pelvic gymnastics that would assist them to take "appropriately active participation in the act of sexual congress and appropriate voluntary muscular action which assists the act of birth." When I checked in 2021 I found no record that this book was published in the United States.

"Clilan (C.B.) Powell, longtime owner of the Amsterdam News, was born in 1894 to former Virginia slaves.  Very little is known about his childhood.  He received his medical degree in 1920 from Howard University School of Medicine and began his career specializing in x-ray technology.   Powell was the first African American x-ray specialist and owned a laboratory in Harlem.  It was at his lab where he met Dr. Philip H.M. Savory, his future business partner.  The two physicians collaborated to create the Powell-Savory Corporation in 1935.

With this new corporation, they switched their focus from medicine to business, and became two of the leading African American entrepreneurs in the 1930s.  They first purchased the failing Victory Life Insurance Company in 1933 in Chicago, Illinois and revived it to a thriving business.  In 1935 they purchased the Amsterdam News, the largest newspaper in Harlem, for $5,000.  Powell became publisher of the New York paper and retained that post until its sale in 1971.  Powell studied other successful newspapers including the New York Times and patterned the Amsterdam News after them.   He also made the Amsterdam News home for numerous African American journalists such as Earl Brown, Thomas Watkins, James L. Hicks, and Jesse H. Walker.  Powell expanded the paper’s coverage to include national and international news...." (blackpast.org article on C. B. Powell, accessed 5-2020).

An atlas of infant behavior: A systematic delineation of the forms and early growth of human behavior patterns... illustrated with 3,200 action photographs. Vol. l: Normative series, in collaboration with Helen Thompson and Catherine S. Amatruda. Selected bibliographies (p. 45). Vol. 2: Naturalistic series, in collaboration with Alice V. Keliher, Frances L. Ilg, and Jessie J. Carlson. (2 vols.)

New Haven, CT, 1934.

Gesell, who originated the Child Study Center at Yale University, was the founder of the study of child development in the United States. He is best known for his groundbreaking studies of normal child development: beginning in the 1920s, he used advanced cinematic and photographic techniques, including one-way mirrors, to record developmental milestones from infancy to adolescence. His most famous work is the Atlas of Infant Behavior, which contains 3200 photographs documenting the human infant's "visible manifestations of his maturing patterns of action and reaction. . . . Through systematic, pictorial charting, we trust that this Atlas will reveal the patterned organization of the moments and of the developmental sequences of infant behavior" (p. 11).

An apparatus for the culture of whole organs.

J. Exp. Med., 62, 409-31, 1935.

In 1931, the year before his son’s sensational kidnapping, the celebrity aviator began working with Alexis Carrel at the Rockefeller Institute on a perfusion pump which would allow the cultivation of whole organs in vitro. His pump maintained a sterile, pulsating circulation of fluid through excised organs, and enabled Carrel to keep organs such as the thyroid gland and kidney alive and functioning. It was a forerunner of the modern heart pump. (See also No. 856.1). Reprinted in Carrel and Lindbergh, The culture of organs, New York, Paul Hoeber, 1938.

Remarkably, Lindbergh maintained a long term interest in this project, authoring another paper as late as 1966:
"An apparatus for the pusating perfusion of whole organs," Cryobiology, 3, 252-260. Co-authored with V.P. Perry, T. I. Malinin, and G.H. Mouer.

Ibn an Nafis und seine Theorie des Lungenkreislaufs.

Quell. Stud. Gesch. Med., 4, 37-88, 1935.

Ibn-al-Nafis, a Syrian physician, described the lesser circulation in his commentary on the anatomy of the Canon of Avicenna, 1268. This was discovered in three Arabic MSS by Mohyi el Din el Tatawi, who included a German translation in his inaugural dissertation, Der Lungenkreislauf nach el-Koraschi, Freiburg, 1924. According to E. J. Brill's First Encyclopaedia of Islam (1913-1936) p. 95, this dissertation was issued in only 5 manuscript copies. Meyerhof included 29 pages of Arabic text in the above paper, which appears to represent the first appearance of the relevant Arabic text of Ibn-al-Nafis in print. English translations are in Ann. Surg., 1936, 104, 1-8, and in Bull. med. Hist., 1955, 29, 430-40. See John B. West, "Ibn al-Nafis, the pulmonary circulation, and the Islamic Golden Age," J Appl Physiol (1985). 2008 Dec; 105(6): 1877–1880.

Ueber die Natur der Genmutation und der Genstruktur.

Nachr. Ges. Wiss. Göttíngen, math.-fis. Kl., Fachgr. 6, 1, 189-245, 1935.

This paper is divided into four sections. The first, by Timofeev-Ressovskij, describes the mutagenic effects of x-rays and gamma rays on Drosophila melanogaster; the second part, by Zimmer, analyzes Timofeev-Ressovskij's results theoretically. The third and most remarkable section, by Delbrück, puts forth a model of genetic mutation based on atomic physics. It represents Delbrück's debut in biology. This has been called the “green paper”, referring to the color of the paper cover of the Nachrichten, and also the Dreimännerarbeit of genetics, for the three authors involved. This paper provided much of the material for Erwin Schrodinger's What is life? (1944), a work that takes a "naive physicist's" approach to the problems of heredity and variation; Shrodinger's book is often cited as having inspired Watson, Crick, Wilkins and others to focus their careers on the problems of molecular biology.

"The Tohono O’odham have rejected the former name Papago, used by Europeans after being adopted by Spanish conquistadores from hearing other Piman bands call them this. The Pima were competitors and referred to the people as Ba꞉bawĭkoʼa meaning "eating tepary beans." That word was pronounced papago by the Spanish and adopted by later English speakers" (Wikipedia article on Tohono O'odham, accessed 03-2017).

The two-step test of myocardial function.

Amer. Heart J., 10, 495-510, 1935.

The “Master TwoStep” exercise tolerance test for the diagnosis of heart disease.

Abstract
"A simple quantitative “two-step” test of myocardial function is described, and tables of climbs are given for normal individuals, from four to seventy-four years of age, of both sexes. The patient's weight multiplied by the number of ascents gives the foot pounds of work per minute. Not only may it be learned in this way whether the exercise tolerance of an individual is within average figures, but his actual limit may be ascertained. The percentage of efficiency is calculated by dividing the number of climbs the patient can actually perform by his theoretical limit, as derived from the tables.

"Men have greater exercise tolerance than women. The maximum of this tolerance appears to be about 3,800 foot pounds of work, in men between twenty-two and thirty-one years of age weighing from 170 to 200 pounds. The maximum for women appears to be 3,000 foot pounds of work performed between the ages of twenty and twenty-seven by individuals whose weight is about 150 to 180 pounds. Older and heavier men and women show a decline in exercise tolerance. Children show the greatest efficiency, that is, the number of ascents possible in the given time is highest in the young. There is a sharp rise until puberty, then the slope is more gradual until the twenties are reached.

"Thyroid extract, ephedrine, alcohol, excessive smoking, and upper respiratory infections affect the results."

Hagedorn created NPH insulin and founded Nordisk Insulinlaboratorium, known today as Novo Nordisk. NPH insulin is one of the earliest examples of engineering drug delivery.

Hagedorn became interested in modifying the sbsorption rate of insulin. He was aware that contaminating proteins slowed the aborption of insulin into the bloodstream, but these caused irritation and side effects. Searching for a protein that would not cause any irritation, he came upon protamine, a protein isolated from fish sperm. Hagerdorn discovered that the addition of protamine to insulin caused the insulin to form microscopic clumps. These clumps took longer to dissolve in the bloodstream. With B. N.Jensen, N. B.

Il "Tractatus de pulsibus," di Alfano Io arcivescovo di Salerno, sec. xi: Trascrizione del codice 1024 della biblioteca dell'Arsenale di Parigi (da carta 16 v. a carta 18 r). Annotazioni e commento con tavoli di riproduzione del testo [di] Pietro Capparoni.

Rome: Istituto nazionale medico farmacologico Serono, 1936.

Alfanus I or Alfano I, a physician before he became archbishop, was one of the earliest doctors of the Schola Medica Salernitana. He was Archbishop of Salerno from 1058 to his death. He was famed as a translator, writer, theologian, and medical doctor. Alfanus translated many manuscripts from the Arabic. His interest in medicine and the translation of Arabic treatises led him to invite Constantine the African from Carthage (in what is now Tunisia) to Salerno to assist him. Constantine brought with him a library of Arabic medical texts which he commenced to translate into Latin.

Physiologus. Ed. F. Sbordóne.

Milan: In aedibus Societatis, 1936.

Physiologus, a didactic Christian text, is thought to have been written or compiled in Greek by an unknown author in Alexandria, 200-275 CE. It describes a "hodgepodge" of animals, real and imaginery, with the fig tree and a few stones with "remarkable" properties thrown in. The Physiologus is distinguished from Aelian's compilation by the presence of explicit Christological interpretations of the lion, the pelican, and other animals. Francesco Sbordone's edition, based on the collation of 77 Greek manuscripts, established three traditions in the surviving manuscripts of the text: a "primitive" tradition, a Byzantine tradition and a pseudo-Basil (Syriac) tradition. Morgan codex 397, an illuminated Greek codex from Grottaferrata, has since been established as the earliest surviving Greek text of Physiologus.

Genetics and the origin of species.

New York: Columbia University Press, 1937.

Dobzhansky, an emigrant from the Soviet Union to the United States, and a postdoctoral worker in Thomas Hunt Morgan's fruit fly lab, was one of the first to apply genetics to natural populations. He worked mostly with Drosophila pseudoobscura. Genetics and the Origin of Species "was a key step in bridging the gap between population geneticists and field naturalists. It presented the conclusions reached by Fisher, Haldane, and especially Wright in their highly mathematical papers in a form that was easily accessible to others. It also emphasized that real world populations had far more genetic variability than the early population geneticists had assumed in their models, and that genetically distinct sub-populations were important. Dobzhansky argued that natural selection worked to maintain genetic diversity as well as driving change" ( Wikipedia article on Modern Synthesis, accessed 03-2017).

Under his influence, Saskatchewan introduced state-funded medical and hospital care for pensioners, people on welfare and cancer patients after being hired to write a report in 1944 by Tommy Douglas the socialist Premier of that Canadian province. This was the basis for the eventual adoption of government funded health care in all of Canada" (Wikipedia article on Henry Sigerist, accessed 02-2018).

The Citadel.

London: Gollancz & Boston, MA: Little, Brown, 1937.

This novel was "groundbreaking with its treatment of the contentious theme of medical ethics. It has been credited with laying the foundation in Great Britain for the introduction of the NHS a decade later.[1] 

"For his fifth book, Dr. Cronin drew on his experiences practising medicine in the coal mining communities of the South Wales Valleys, as he had for The Stars Look Down two years earlier. Specifically, he had researched and reported on the correlation between coal dust inhalation and lung disease in the town of Tredegar. He had also worked as a doctor for the Tredegar Medical Aid Society at the Cottage Hospital, which served as the model for the National Health Service" (Wikipedia article on The Citadel (novel) accessed 04-2018).

Vienna & Berlin & Innsbruck, Munich: Urban & Schwarzenberg, 19371960.

Pernkopf's anatomy is remarkable for the intricacy of its detailed images and its "regional stratigraphic" approach, i.e. "multiple layers of dissection with an emphasis on fascia shown and reflected, approaching the subject from superficial to deep dissection in great detail" (Hildebrandt). An Austrian professor of anatomy, Pernkopf joined the Sturmabteilung or Storm Troopers in 1933, and promoted Nazi racial hygiene and antisemitism as dean of the University of Vienna Medical School. As a result 77% of the faculty, including all Jews and three Nobel laureates, were dismissed.

Though Pernkopf's anatomical atlas remains in many ways unsurpassed, it is likely that at least some of the cadavers used for dissections were those of executed prisoners, including Jews. In the early German editions the artists incorporated swastikas and SS insignias into their signatures. By the time the book was published internationally some of the Nazi symbols had been airbrushed out, and the medical community was so enthralled with the illustrations that few bothered to consider their origins or Pernkopf’s past. In their review of the 1963 edition, The Annals of Internal Medicine said it was “magnificently conceived and a finely printed book.” The Lancet wrote “most of the illustrations are outstanding works of art.... it should be in every medical school library.” As late as 1990 JAMA said that it was “a classic among atlases... [and] for all those who have an interest and appreciation of anatomical illustration, and the wherewithal to afford it, this atlas is one of the best” (http://www.codex99.com/anatomy/93.html). A condensed two-volume edition was published in English as Atlas of topographical and applied human anatomy (Philadelphia: W. B. Saunders, 1963) and was eventually translated into several languages. Updated editions were published in 1980 and 1988. See Sabine Hildebrandt, "How the Pernkopf controversy facilitated a historical and ethical analysis of the anatomical sciences in Austria and Germany: A recommendation for the continued use of the Pernkopf atlas," Clinical Anatomy, 19 (2006), 91-100.

A sex starved world.

Los Angeles, CA: The Yale Publishing Company, 1937.

A eugenic utopian fantasy, in which we accompany a doctor in his dream journey to the liberated land of Amor. Pritcher presents an impassioned argument for free universal health care, contraception, no-fault divorce, social clubs, collective childcare facilities, and comprehensive applied sex education. This healthy, community-regulated sexual pedagogy is the author’s cure for any number of societal ills, including venereal disease, mental health issues, child abandonment, impotence, marital violence, gender inequality, infidelity and sundry perversions. Sargent's Utopian Literature in English cites this as A love starved world, and it is possible that the book was published under both titles by the same publisher in 1939.

A combination resuscitator and incubator for new-born infants.

J. Amer. Med. Assoc., 108, 1874, 1937.

In 1931 Robert Bauer invented the first incubator to combine heat, oxygen, and humidity.
Abstract:
"The apparatus herein described was built in July 1931 to meet in a practical way the well established needs of the premature or the full term new-born infant suffering from respiratory or circulatory embarrassment; namely, (1) carbon dioxide-oxygen mixture1 for stimulation of the respiratory centers, (2) oxygen2 to combat anoxemia, (3) external heat to maintain body temperature, (4) easy accessibility to provide feeding and nursing care with a minimum of handling and without removing the baby from the atmosphere of oxygen, and (5) full visibility to insure careful watching. Continuous use of the apparatus in the nursery of the Henry Ford Hospital for five years has proved its value in treating cases of asphyxia neonatorum, intracranial hemorrhage, atelectasis, congenital heart disease, blood dyscrasias, excessive mucus or any other condition that might cause cyanosis or anoxemia."

Electrophoresis of serum globulin. II- Electrophoretic analysis of normal and immune sera.

Tiselius showed that an antibody that he produced in a rabbit by immunizing it with albumin (ovalbumin) was clearly located in the gamma globulin fraction. He summarized the paper with this statement: "Investigation of a highly potent anti-egg albumin ('ovalbumin') serum from rabbit showed that the antibody function migrated with the gamma globulin fraction only."

Consequences of separation and identification of the antibody were that it could be studied and characterized, could be quantitated, and could be used to identify pathologic conditions in which it was either absent or low.

El tratamiento de la fractura de guerra.

Barcelona: Biblioteca Médica de Cataluña, 1938.

During the Spanish Civil War (1935-38) Trueta adopted as standard treatment for gunshot wounds and compound fractures the closed plaster method originated by the American surgeon H. Winnett Orr. Trueta called this the biological treatment of wounds. The treatment consisted of débridement and wound excision followed by packing the wound open and immobilizing the limb in a plaster dressing. Also in 1938 the same publisher issued Trueta's book in Trueta's native Catalan as El tractament de les factures de guerra. Whether the Catalan or Spanish edition preceded the other, or whether they might have been issued simultaneously, is unknown. English translation: Treatment of war wounds and fractures: with special reference to the closed method as used in the war in Spain, London, 1939.
