MAXWELL MYER WINTROBE October27, 1901-December9, 986 BY WILLIAM N. VALENTINE WHEN MAXWEEE MYER WINTROBE died in Salt Lake City on December 9, 1986, his distinguished career in med- icine and in his subspecialty of hematology had spanned some sixty years from the conquest of pernicious anemia to the present. His scientific achievements are recorded in more than 400 publications. His Clinical Hematology, first pub- lished in 1942 and currently in its eighth edition, remains a prototype of excellence and for many years stood alone as the premier text in his chosen field. In 1943 Max Wintrobe became the founding chairman of the Department of Medicine at the University of Utaha post he filled with great energy and ability until 1967. From that time until his death he continued an active and produc- tive career at Utah as Distinguished Professor. By all accounts, Max was a world leader in hematology, a role attested to by a legion of honors, visiting professorships, memberships and activities in national and international scientific societies, consultantships, editorial responsibilities, and perhaps most importantlyby the large cadre of stu- dents who had flocked to be under his tutelage and who themselves went on to be leaders in their medical communi- ties and in academia. 447

448 BIOGRAPHICAL MEMOIRS EDUCATION AND EARLY LIFE Max Wintrobe was born October 27, 1901, in Halifax, Nova Scotia. His parents (both of whom hac! emigrated from Austria) adjusted rapidly to the new community, adding the English language to their repertoire of German, Polish, and Yiddish. Their educational background! was limited and their lifestyle frugal, as dictated by modest means. His mother's family, the Zwerlings, was large ant! had been in Canada for many years. Max, an only child, responded to his mother's deep interest in education and her urgings to stucly, work hard, ant! achieve. In 1912, the family moved to Winnipeg, Manitoba, where, however, there were few French and no family. A better-than-average student, Max entered the Univer- sity of Manitoba at age fifteen. Having already determines! on a medical career, he also made the decision to spend four undergraduate years before entering medical school, though only one year was required at the time. At the University he showed his facility for language, favoring English, Latin, and French ant! winning goIc! menials in the latter and in political economy. He also discovered his love of history and the well- turnec! phrase so important to his later career. Entering medical school at twenty, Max developed a spe- cial interest in the Johns Hopkins Medical Center through the writings of William Osler, but limited circumstances pre- vented any thought of transferring. Throughout his under- gracluate and medical school years he worked at a variety of ocict jobs to further his education ant! to help the family fi- nances. Of his teachers at Manitoba he remembered William Boyct, professor of pathology a flowery and exciting lec- turer with a rich Scottish brogue as the most stimulating. But as graduation neared, Max, who had achieved an out- standing record, became increasingly aware of his lack of

MAXWELL MYER WINTROBE 449 desire to go into private practice, though other opportunities were few and resources limited. After his internship and re- ceipt of the M.D. degree in 1926, the dilemma was resolved by the offer of the first Gordon Bell Fellowship, named in honor of the dean of the University who had just retired. Wintrobe was first assigned the task of determining the relative prevalence of achiorhyciria in certain western Cana- clian communities where the incidence of pernicious ane- mia a subject of especially great interest in 1926 was be- lieved to vary widely. A second assignment, pursued energetically but fruitlessly, was to produce achylia gastrica in clogs. Thus was launched a clistinguishecI, lifelong aca- demic career in the field of hematology. THE TULANE YEARS (192719304: ANEMIA OF THE SOUTH, NORMAL BLOOD VALUES, THE WINTROBE HEMATOCRIT, AND CORPUSCULAR CONSTANTS In September 1927, Max arrived in New OrIeans, having accepted the offer of an appointment as assistant in medicine at Tulane University from Dean C. Bass. Assures! of an an- nual stipend of $1,800 and a small laboratory next to Roy Turnera Hopkins graduate ant! the consummate erudite clinician it was possible to get married. Max returned to Winnipeg and shortly thereafter, on January I, 192S, brought his bricle, nee Becky Zamphir, from the-50F of Winnipeg to bright, sunny New OrIeans. Max's New OrIeans years were both pleasant and procluc- tive. Charity Hospital offerect a wealth of clinical material, inclucting nutritional ant! other anemias of all types, tropical disease, tuberculosis, and every variety of neoplasia. John H. Musser, the distinguished chief of medicine, suggested that Wintrobe find out if the widely believed "anemia of the South" myth actually existed. Though Max could not identify any such entity, the study allowed him to collect tiara and

450 BIOGRAPHICAL MEMOIRS develop techniques that became an integral part of the clin- ical evaluation of all patients, not only those with blooc! and marrow disorders. He first worked to document statistically normal values for hematologic parameters in normal adults and children. Acceptec! round numbers of normality at that time were cle- rivec} from only a few counts and from observations some seventy-five years old. A "normal" hemoglobin value in men was expressed as ~ 00%. Wintrobe's careful observations macle on Tulane medical students and women from Sophie Newcomb College together with observations by Russell Haclen in ClevelancI, Edwin Osgood in Portland, and a few made in Europe served as basic ciata for establishing nor- mality in terms of quantitatively accurate observations. Max's second important contribution was the invention of the Wintrobe hematocrit, which universally replacer! the leaky, awkwardly calibrated ant! poorly conceiver! devices of the 1920s. Wintrobe's calibrated, straight-sided tube helct about a milliliter of blood. Most importantly, any venous blood sample being measured in the tube was anticoagulated with a combination of potassium and ammonium oxalate that clid not cause cells to shrink or swell. Although many millions of the Wintrobe hematocrits have been soIci, neither Win- trobe nor Tulane profited. Since the instrument was intended for the public good, Wintrobe refused all royalties ant! ap- plied for no patent. Another important innovation came to Wintrobe in the mi(lclle of the night while puzzling over the inadequacies of the various indices then in vogue. These includec} color, vol- ume, and saturation indices derived indirectly from ratios based on "percent of normal" for reel cell numbers, hemo- gIobin content, etc. Wintrobe's methoc! permitted direct cal- culation of the average cell size, MCV (mean corpuscular vol- ume in cubic microns), MCH (mean hemoglobin content in

MAXWELL MYER WINTROBE 451 picograms), and MCHC (mean corpuscular hemoglobin con- centration in percent) quantifications that are stanclarct procedure in research and clinical laboratories today. I. H. Musser's invitation to assist him in rewriting the sec- tion on diseases of the blooc! for the ten-volume looseleaf set of the Tice Practice of Medicine (1931,3) marked a new step in Wintrobe's career. The new section was documented with great care and had a lengthy bibliography, not a common practice at the time. This desire for full bibliographical cloc- umentation later resulted in one of the most valuable features of Wintrobe's textbook Clinical Hematology ~ ~ 942,5~. During his three years in New OrIeans, Wintrobe worked toward his Ph.D. degree. His thesis, The Erythrocyte in Man (1930,3), represented a review of worIct literature and of his own studies in that fielcI. In his efforts to apply appropriate statistical methods to his own data, Wintrobe had contacted Raymond Pear] at Johns Hopkins, author of the helpful Introduction to Medical Biometry and Statistics. With the assistance of Dean Bass, Win- trobe was able to journey to Hopkins, see Pearl, and meet Alan Chesney, clean of the Medical School. When searching for a suitable publication for his thesis sometime later, Win- trobe hit upon the review journal Medicine; serendipitously, Chesney was its editor. Chance again favored Max, his thesis was publishecI, and his long-cherished wish to study an(1 work at Hopkins became a reality. He was offered an appointment as instructor in the Division of Clinical Microscopy. JOHNS HOPKINS ~ ~ 930~ 943) The Wintrobes fount! some aspects of life in Baltimore less than pleasing, but meclically an(1 scientifically Hopkins was all they had hope(1 for.

The student caliber was good, the faculty talented and in the forefront of medicine. The times were busy but the Great Depression had brought austerity to all. Max had no secre- tarial assistance and there were no funcis to train technicians. He trained his own assistants (including Becky) but could pay them nothing. Instead, he bartered training for their ser- vices. To assist in studies in comparative hematology, Becky first mastered the art of venipuncture on fish, and she sub- sequently became chief technician at the diagnostic clinic. Max carried out studies of comparative hematology on animals in the Washington, D.C., Zoo, and during one en- joyable summer at Mountain Desert Island in Maine, where Homer Smith, Jim Shannon, and other distinguished scien- tists were also working. The Wintrobes spent other summers pleasantly working at Woods Hole in Massachusetts. Baltimore was the site of much intellectual exchange in medicine, and Wintrobe enjoyed and benefited! from discus- sions with his many colleagues, including George Minot, Bill Castle, and others of the Boston group. Max's career-Ion" interest in pernicious anemia, for instance, was furthered by his admiration of CastIe's classic experiments, and Castle ap- propriately authored the foreword to his last book, Hematol- ogy, the Blossoming of a Science ~ ~ 985, I ). It was also fitting that Irving Sherman, a Hopkins student working with Wintrobe, incidentally noted birefringence of sickles! red cells in the course of his studies on the role of deoxygenation in producing sickling. Bill Castle later brought this fincling to the attention of Linus Pauling in a chance conversation, giving birth to studies that wouIc] define the molecular lesion of hemoglobin responsible for sickle cell anemia and usher in the era of molecular biology.

MAXWELL MYER WINTROBE 453 In 1933 Becky and Max, backed by a six-month leave and a half-year's pay, embarked! on the first of their many trips to Europe. During these months they visited a large number of institutions and met many of the current and future leaders of hematology in Englancl and on the continent. Among many others were Otto Naegli of Zurich, acknowledged as the outstanding hematologist in Europe, Isidore Snapper, whose clinic was in HolIancI, Paul Morawitz of Leipzig, and Janet Vaughn of England. Although Max's first paper was published in 1928 in the New Orieans Medical and Surgical journal, by 1933 he had already achieved a considerable rep- utation in the field of hematology. At Hopkins he sought to expand his data on normal blood values and on the uses of the hematocrit. He clemonstrated that the hematocrit effectively measured erythrocyte secli- mentation rate and that, when proper centrifugation was em- ployed, the volume of packed red cells could be ascertained accurately and the mass of leukocytes and platelets roughly approximated. The supernatant plasma was also a conve- nient medium for determining icterus. With the hematocrit, Wintrobe was also able to demonstrate a cryogIobulin in blood and to diagnose a previously unsuspected case of mul- tiple myeloma. As he and Buell reporter} in the Bulletin of the fohns Hopkins Hospital (1933,2), the temperature dependent, reversible turbidity evident in supernatant plasma in a he- matocrit temporarily placed in a refrigerator, had led the researchers to this diagnosis. After returning from Europe, Max resumed a busy sched- ule of writing anc} research. In 1940 he published a study of forty members of three Italian families, some of whom suf- fered from splenomegaly, milct icterus, and blood changes recognized as a mild form of thalassemia. In a footnote he pointed out that the same condition had been observed in the parents of a patient with Cooley's anemia, also cited in a

454 BIOGRAPHICAL MEMOIRS later table in his first edition of Clinical Hematology. This ob- servation coincicled with independent observations by Da- meshek ant! Strauss in America and Silvestroni and Bianco, somewhat later, in Italy, to establish the recessive transmission of thalassemia. In 193S, another study by Wintrobe and Rob- ert H. Williams (later to head the Department of Medicine at the University of Washington in Seattle) clemonstratec! that nonautolyzed yeast in sufficient amounts could induce a he- mopoietic response in patients with pernicious anemia. As a house officer, Williams was able to sequester suitable subjects from the eye of Professor Longcope, who was unenthusiastic about the study. The hemopoietic response presumably arose from large amounts of folic acid in the yeast supplement. Other studies conducted with H. B. Schumacker, who later became chief of surgery at Indiana University, centerec! on the significance of macrocytosis and its association with liver disease. Struck by the fact that macrocytosis occurred in both human ant! animal fetal development, Max, his stu- dents, and coworkers began studying fetal Hood in experi- mental animals. The opossum prover! unaccommodating and was abandonecI, but the domestic pig proved more tract- able. Wintrobe's early work with this animal model provided a basis for his later studies in nutritional anemia, vitamin deficiency, ant! trace metal metabolism carrier! out at Utah. Though attempts to produce pernicious anemia in animals prover! fruitless, other studies brought about diverse scien- tific contributions in many areas: the role of splenectomy in thrombocytopenic purpura, the etiology and management of the anemias, and the diverse manifestations of the leukemias. Quantitatively cleterminec! corpuscular constants became universally accepted as a basis for classifying red cell ctis- orders.

MAXWELL MYER WINTROBE 455 clone meticulously, records were fully clocumented and main- tained, all available literature was explored thoroughly, and compendious bibliographies were compiled. Max consistently involved both students and house officers in his research ac- tivities, and his association with fine investigators (such as pathologist Arnold Rich) stimulated the flow of ideas while building valuable contacts. Many of these students and house officers later achieved fame, including George Eastman Cart- wright, who worker! with Max as a second-year student, fol- lowed him to Salt Lake City, and in 1967 succeeded him as Utah's chairman of medicine. On Pear] Harbor Day, December 7, 1941, Max was work- . sing to complete the index of the first edition of Clinical Hema- tology (1942,54. Since the authorities insisted he remain in Baltimore he began studying chemical warfare agents with Professor Longcope and Val Jaeger, then a house officer. At Utah, he and Jaeger later continued the work begun at Baltimore's U.S. Army Edgewoocl Arsenal (in Baltimore). In 1943, Max was called to be the chairman of Medicine at the newly established University of Utah Medical Schoolthe first four-year medical school between Denver and the Pacific Coast from Canada to Mexico. T H E UTA H Y EA RS ~ ~ 94 3~ 9 ~ 6 Max was now an established leader in hematology in charge of the Clinic for Nutritional, Gastrointestinal ant! Hemopoietic Disorders and an associate physician at Hop- kins. ClinicalHematoZogy, published in 1942, hac! filled a major voic! in the field and was well on its way to becoming the leacling hematological reference work. But when the Wintrobes and their young daughter, Susan Hope (born in Baltimore in 1937), considered moving to Utah in 1943, they did so with considerable trepidation. As Canadians, they knew little about Utah, but two Hopkins

456 BIOGRAPHICAL MEMOIRS men Phillip Price and A. Louis Dippelwere going there as, respectively, chief of Surgery and chief of Obstetrics- Gynecology at the new school. In adclition, Alan Gregg, vice-presiclent of the Rockefeller Foundation, and Isaiah Bowman, president of Johns Hopkins, both urgect Max to accept, stressing the importance of this opportunity to open ~ . a new frontier. But if Utah offered "opportunity," it offerecl, in Max's own fiord, "absolutely nothing more." The hospital's clinical facil- ities ant] plant were run clown and poorly administered. The medical school was hou sect in a dormitory co ns tructecl for World War ~ cavalry officers. The promised new medical cen- ter materialized only after twenty-two years, to be cledicatecl two years before Max's retirement as chief of medicine. In 1943, as far as he was concerned, faculty in all departments had to be recruited, medical care improved, student scholas- tic standards raised, goals reoriented, research projects and facilities established, and supporting funds obtained. Despite these hare} facts, all the departments continued to grow steaclily, and their chairmen functioned well together. By 1950, the Department of Medicine faculty numbered ten and included high-caliber, enthusiastic recruits dedicated to the goal of establishing a first-rate medical school. The Hematology Division enjoyed worIdwicle fame, attracting young physicians from North America and elsewhere in large numbers. Max instituted a program (later widely emulated) whereby students, house officers, and fellows initially exam- inec! all patients, whether private or nonpaying, as subjects for undergraduate and graduate teaching. Between 1947 and 1984, 170 graduate students were trained in hematology and participates! in research activities at Utah. Well over half remained in academic medicine, a number as leaders, ant!

A second publishing endeavor highly valued by Max was the Principles of Internal Medicine (1950,1; 1954,3; 1974,1), with TinsIey R. Harrison as editor-in-chief. In 1950 when Principles was first published, Cecil and Loeb's excellent text enjoyed a near monopoly in its field. Harrison's Principles, with its emphasis on the pathophysiology and biochemistry of disease, opened the way for a new approach. Principles recommended diagnosis and treatment based not only on the signs and symptoms that brought the patient to the physician, but also on this pathophysiology. The original authors included Harrison, Resnick, Dock, Keefer, and Wintrobe, who were later joined by Paul Beeson, George Thorn, and others. Max was coeditor of this highly successful text through five editions, and the book was trans- lated into Portuguese, Italian, Polish, and Greek. For the sixth and seventh editions, he served as eclitor-in-chief. Max's final literary efforts sprang from a long-standing interest in medical history. Bloodt, Pure and Eloquent (1980,I), edited and partly authored by Max, was (like Clinical Hema- tology) dedicated "To Becky." It includes his own chapters on classic early discoveries in hematology, followed by chapters written by contemporary hematologists who themselves had made significant contributions to the subject areas of which they wrote. Most recently, his Hematology, the Blossoming of a Science: A Story of Inspiration and Effort ~~ 985,~ tells the human history of many contributors to the field through more than 500 biographical sketches. Writing this book as part memoir, part history, Wintrobe yet realizer! that he could never cover the lives of all who hacl contributed to "the Golden Age of hema- tology."

MAXWELL MYER WINTROBE RETIREMENT FROM THE CHAIR OF MEDICINE 463 In 1967 Max was succeeded at Utah as head of the De- partment of Medicine and physician-in-chief at the Univer- sity Hospital by George Cartwright; it can hardly be saic! he retired. As Distinguished Professor of Internal Medicine he continues} to see patients and, of course, write. He continued oIc! activities, initiated new ones, and receiver! a cascade of honors and awards after becoming emeritus. His curriculum vitae shows more than twenty visiting professorships at major universities in the United States and abroad after 1967. In 1977 the Wintrobes purchased a condominium in Palm Desert ant! thereafter spent the winter months in the more gentle climate of southern California. This meant an ens! to skiing but the opportunity to golf, write, edit, ant! relax. Many agencies private and governmental continued their clemanc] for Max's participation. As a senior statesman and ambassador his style underwent little change. He spoke in deep, carefully measured tones, ant! when he was in charge, he ran a tight ship. He never dispensed the fruits of experience ant! wisdom with the benignity of a Bernard Bar- uch, from a park bench. Fair and decisive, he hell! strong opinions, and he clic! not hesitate to express them and would scrap for a cause he believed in. Reminiscing in 1984, he stated that he was unequivocally happy to have accepted the challenge and come to Utah in 1943. As he looked back over the forty years since leaving Hopkins, a time that had been full of opportunities and crownec! with achievement, he and Becky couIct only con- clu(le they were glad they had ventured. When Max received his M.D. in 1926, the death sentence of a diagnosis of pernicious anemia hac! just been commuted ant! the discipline of hematology (essentially based on mor- phology) wouIcl never be the same. That same year Cooley

The first hospital-operated blooc! bank would not appear for more than another decade. The Rh-antigen system was undiscoverecI. The Coombs' test and autoimmune disease were unknown and the erythroenzymopathies unsuspected. The genetic code, the hemogIobinopathies and their molec- ular basis were not the subject of any text. Nobody knew of erythropoietin or discussed "B" and "T" lymphocytes, "col- ony stimulating factor," lymphokines, or granulocyte metab- olism and kinetics. There were no chemotherapeutic agents for malignant blooc! dyscrasias except the arsenical Fowler's solution employee! in treating chronic granulocytic leukemia. No one had thought of marrow transplants, genetic engi- neering, or the role of oncogenes. These fragments of the explosion of information uncov- ered between 1926 and Max's death in 1986 give some small idea of what he liked to call the Golden Age of Hematology. It was indeed a golden era and Max Wintrobe was one of its chief architects and ambassadors to the world. Max is survived by his wife, Becky; his (laughter, Susan; and his four grandsons, Andrew, Stephen, Timothy, and Davis! Brown.
