Overview

This biography of one of the most prominent pediatricians of the twentieth century describes his illustrious medical family and his remarkable tenure of nearly three decades as Thomas Morgan Rotch Professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School and head of the department of medicine at Children's Hospital, Boston. During this period Janeway built the first department of pediatrics in the nation with subspecialties based upon the new developments in basic sciences. Janeway and his colleagues defined the gamma globulin disorders that resulted in children's increased susceptibility to infections and associated arthritic disorders.

Janeway was the most visible U.S. pediatrician on the world scene in the last half of the 20th century. He traveled widely, taught modern pediatrics to thousands of physicians throughout the developing world, and brought many of them to the U.S. for further training. He was instrumental in starting teaching hospitals in Shiraz, Iran, and Cameroon.

Janeway believed that through teaching by example he might further the cause of peace in the world. His life is an inspiration to everyone in medicine, and serves as a model that all can seek to improve the health of the world's millions and promote a more peaceful future.

Editorial Reviews

Journal of the American Medical Association

Robert Haggerty and Frederick Lovejoy, two of Janeway's most devoted and distinguished trainees (and there were hundreds of them), have composed a well-written biography of Janeway that details his family background and his career. These are accounts that embrace the history of academic medicine. Although the major intended audience of this well documented and illustrated book includes physicians who served or trained at Boston Children's Hospital, the wider readership will be those who are fascinated by cultural and particularly medical history...Haggerty and Lovejoy have done Janeway justice. For that and for their own diverse academic contributions, we remain deeply grateful.
— David G. Nathan

Pediatrics

This is a wonderful book about a very special person...The book is full of interesting antidotes. I encourage every pediatrician to read it, but especially those who are in pediatric academia or research.
