Genetics and Medicine in the United States: 1800-1922
Alan R. Rushton (au)
Investigates the relationship between develop. in the science of genetics and the clinical practice of med. in the U.S. Physicians first doubted, then slowly accepted, the relevance of Mendelís work for human heredity. The modern synthesis of cytology and genetics by 1910 was widely discussed in the medical community, and by 1915 physicians began to recognize that the transmission of various human disorders such as hemophilia fit the Mendelian model. Yet by the 1920s, progress had reached a standstill, due to greater interest in such bacteriological diseases as TB and to the fact that many physicians permitted their ethical objections to eugenics theories, embraced by genetics researchers, to color their judgment of the research itself.
