About this Item

8vo. xiv, 595 pp. Illus., index. Navy cloth, dust-jacket; jacket extremities worn, very browned. RARE WITH JACKET. "Dr. May G. Wilson, a former Clinical Professor of Pediatrics at Cornell University Medical College (CUMC) and a pediatric consultant for New York Hospital (NYH), was born in Brooklyn in 1891. Dr. Wilson received her undergraduate degree from Hunter College and graduated from Cornell University Medical College in 1911 at the age of twenty, making her at the time one of the youngest students to graduate with a medical degree from Cornell. Following her medical school graduation, Dr. Wilson interned at Syracuse Memorial Hospital. Returning to New York Hospital following the end of her internship, she soon set up the hospital's first rheumatic fever clinic in 1916. Recognizing both the value of follow-up care and the potentially hereditary nature of the disease, Dr. Wilson designed the clinic around the concept of long-term follow-up care and emphasized the significance in monitoring children in families with rheumatic fever victims. Her research emphasized the use of early hormone therapy to treat rheumatic fever and heart disease. Dr. Wilson served concurrently as Clinical Professor of Pediatrics at Cornell University Medical College and as a pediatric consultant for New York Hospital. She earned the title Professor Emeritus of Clinical Pediatrics in 1959 and retired five years later in 1964. Having served the Cornell University community for half a century, Dr. Wilson won the Cornell University Medical College Alumni Association's Award for Distinguished Service in 1963. Dr. Wilson authored two textbooks on rheumatic disease and numerous articles and maintained memberships in several professional societies including the American Academy of Sciences, the American Heart Association, the American Rheumatism Association, the American Pediatric Society, the Society for Pediatric Research, and the Harvey Society and served as director of the New York Heart Association."
