"The rapid spread and wide distribution of knowledge concerning [Huntington's Disease] was in no small measure due to the interest that William Osler . . . took in it. Osler had a lifelong interest in chorea . . . [he] dealt specifically with Huntington's chorea in several case reports and papers (1890, 1893, 1894). – Gillian Bates, Sarah Tabrizi, Lesley Jones, Huntington's Disease, Oxford University Press, (2002), pp. 9-10, 12, 13. "Osler had become an authority on chorea, having published a lengthy paper in the Journal of Nervous and Mental Diseases in 1893, and a monograph, On Chorea and Choreiform Affections, in 1894, both of which included discussions of the hereditary disease." – Alice Wexler, The Woman Who Walked Into the Sea: Huntington's and the Making of a Genetic Disease.
