Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. (1809-1894) was an American physician and author whose essays were published regularly in The Atlantic Monthly—a magazine he named, and which still thrives today.  As a doctor, Holmes was an influential early proponent of the germ disease of contagion, and pressed for the training of women and African American physicians.
