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.

Research Facts
Bertha Harmer was born the 22nd of March, 1880 in Port Hope, Ontario, and passed away on the 14th of December, 1934, in Toronto. After having first worked as a cashier and bookkeeper, Harmer entered the Toronto General Hospital Training School for Nurses at just over the age of 30. She graduated first in her class in 1913. After graduating, she went to Teacher's College at Columbia University in New York, then taught nursing through World War I and beyond. Her "Text-book of the principles and practice of nursing" was first published in 1922, and went through many editions and translations. Her second book was also successful, and the pair established her as a leader in the field. Her health began to deteriorate in the 1920s, During the Great Depression, she began a fundraising campaign to save the School for Graduate Nurses at McGill University. Though she died in 1934, the school survived. Professionally, Harmer was motivated, ambitious, and expressive. Personally, she was reserved, preferring to live and work alone, and never married. She enjoyed books, art, and theatre.
