One Hundred Members of the Association of British Neurologists: A Collective Biography for 1933–1960.
Journal of the History of the Neurosciences. Oct-Dec2011, Vol. 20 Issue 4, p338-356. 19p. 1 Chart, 11 Graphs.
This article draws a quantitative portrait of British neurology in the interwar and postwar periods through an analysis of the first 100 members of the Association of British Neurologists. Through its presentation of data, this article argues that the members of the Association of British Neurologists were extremely ambitious and as a whole had attained unusually high levels of social, professional, and civil distinction. It makes this argument through an examination of their social and educational backgrounds, the trajectory of their careers, and their achievements in the form of editorships of journals, professorships in medicine, positions in government, honorary degrees, and other indicators of merit. This collective study therefore offers an explanation for how the Association of British Neurologists transformed from an elite club in the 1930s into an organization that eventually came to represent clinical neurology across Britain.

The article presents a biography of neurologist and psychiatrist Kurt Goldstein, with emphasis given to his work studying patients with neurological disorders. Goldstein was taught by neurologists Carl Wernicke and Ludwig Edinger. He developed a theory on abstract and concrete attitudes. He did not believe human behavior could only be characterized by reflexes. He escaped to the U.S. in 1935 to avoid Nazi persecution.

The biography of Mary E. O'Sullivan: an early American headache specialist.
Country of Publication: England NLM ID: 8200710 Publication Model: Print-Electronic Cited Medium: Internet ISSN: 1468-2982 (Electronic) Linking ISSN: 03331024 NLM ISO Abbreviation: Cephalalgia Subsets: MEDLINE
The aim of this study was to review the life of Mary E. O'Sullivan and to summarize her important contributions to the study of migraine. Mary E. O'Sullivan underwent extensive training to become a neurologist at a time when only 5% of women in America were physicians. She published five papers on migraine. In a 1936 Journal of the American Medical Association article, she described a patient with ergotamine overuse headache and recommended that daily doses of oral ergotamine should be avoided. Three years later she described migraine as a 'complex' syndrome with multiple causes and multiple cures. Mary E. O'Sullivan, an ambitious female headache specialist of the 1930s, was an early advocate of the use of ergotamine to treat migraine, yet she was one of the first to report ergotamine overuse headache. Although her life was short, her research, knowledge and ambition at a time when women had limited opportunities in medicine have left a mark.

A biography of James Ramsay Hunt (1874-1937).
Publisher: Routledge Country of Publication: England NLM ID: 9441330 Publication Model: Print Cited Medium: Print ISSN: 0964-704X (Print) Linking ISSN: 0964704X NLM ISO Abbreviation: J Hist Neurosci Subsets: MEDLINE; History of Medicine
James Ramsay Hunt (1874-1937) was a pre-eminent twentieth-century American neurologist. The name of Ramsay Hunt is known today because several neurological disorders bear his name, including the herpetic geniculate ganglion syndrome and a form of ataxia and myoclonus. Despite his importance in the field of neurology, few biographical details have been recorded about Hunt's life. One of the authors of this report recently located Hunt's daughter. This biographical sketch was based on interviews conducted with her and review of documents in her possession, including letters written by Hunt. Details are depicted about Hunt's family background and childhood, medical education and early professional development, courtship and marriage, wartime experiences, family and social life, daily routine and professional development, as well as illness and death.
