Research Facts
Joseph Bolivar DeLee was a Chicago physician who cut a large figure in the world of early twentieth century obstetrics. He contributed to the medicalization of childbirth and emphasized the use of medication and instruments. Some argue that this was unnecessary and endangered mothers. Others claim that he played a pivotal role in the development of obstetrics at a critical point. He earned his international reputation through his textbooks.
W. B. Saunders Company began in 1888 in Philadelphia, and published "American Textbook of Surgery" in 1892, followed by many other authoritative medical works. One of the most notorious Saunders publishing adventures was the Kinsey Report, comprised of "Sexual Behaviour in the Human Male" and "Sexual Behaviour in the Human Female." The company was sold to American broadcaster CBS in 1968.
