Dr. Maxwell M. WintrobeThe Legacy of Dr. Maxwell M. Wintrobe

Few have appreciated the wealth of information to be gained by the study of blood more than Maxwell Myer Wintrobe (1906 to 1986). He cited poets, including John Donne’s “pure and eloquent blood” and Goethe’s “Blood is a juice of a very special kind”; but he added that “It is for the scientist that the blood has been especially eloquent.” It has been over 70 years since Wintrobe wrote the first edition of Clinical Hematology (1942); and at the time, he was uncertain if it would have much readership owing to the priorities of World War II. His objective was “to bring together the accumulated information in the field of hematology in a systematic and orderly form.” He felt the book should be “comprehensive, complete, and authoritative.” He emphasized the importance of “an accurate diagnosis as a prerequisite to efficacious treatment.” His goals were to link science to the clinical practice of hematology and to provide the best therapy possible for an individual patient.
