American Men of Medicine; Third Edition of Who's Important in Medicine.
by [Who's Important in Medicine] Institute for Research in Biography.
Farmingdale:: Institute for Research in Biography, 1961., 1961. Thick 8vo. , vi, , 768 pp. Red gilt-stamped pebbled cloth. Very good. Interesting artifact of another era, when it was presumed that all the important physicians were male. The Institute for Research in Biography (IRB) was a for-profit database modeled on Who's Who, existing on revenue generated by the copies ordered by those profiled. It remains an excellent source of medical biography, and a reminder that ego is as great a force in publishing, sometimes, as achievement.
