WLH Duckworth (1870-1956) and his translation of Galen's Anatomical Procedures.J Med Biogr. 2007 Aug; 15(3):134-8.JM
Wynfrid Laurence Henry Duckworth was one of the leading comparative anatomists of the first half of the 20th century, and he made important contributions to biological anthropology and anatomical education. In his eighth decade Duckworth turned his considerable gifts to the history of medicine. This paper examines the circumstances of his English translation of the second half of Anatomical Procedures, one of Galen's most important works.
