This biography of Marion Sims, the father of modern gynecology, is a fascinating story of a great man written by one of his admirers. The author is a distinguished physician, teacher and investigator as well as a fellow Southerner, who first became interested in Sims when he was only 15 years old. He drove his father, who was a physician, on his daily rounds and listened to the biography of Sims. Dr. Harris' interest in the "woman's surgeon" continued over the years, and this biography is the result of much study and investigation.
