Biographical Note

Pediatrician and Director, Child Research Council, University of Colorado (1930-1960). The Child Research Council conducted a very important study of child growth. This study, which is commonly referred to as the Denver Study, began in 1927 and may have been the first long term multidisciplinary study of child growth and development. It served as a model for studies that began in 1928-1929 in Yellow Springs, Ohio (Fels Longitudinal Study) and in California (Berkeley Growth Study). The Denver Study, breaking new ground, encompassed physical growth and maturation, body composition, health, educational progress, dietary intakes, and selected aspects of biochemistry, physiology, and developmental psychology. Awards include Colorado Public Health Association Florence Sabin Award (1967); American Pediatric Association President 1954-55.
