Pioneers Profiled in Past Issues of
Johns Hopkins Magazine
"The Dark World of Park
Serial killers, sexual sadists, celebrity stalkers, family
annihilators--you name the perversion and forensic
psychiatrist Park Dietz has probably explored it, asking
questions and taking notes.
"A Doctor Who Makes Barn
In the heart of Pennsylvania's farm country sits the Clinic
for Special Children, where medical specialist Holmes Morton
dedicates himself to diagnosing and treating inherited
diseases among the Amish and Mennonites--illnesses that,
until he came along, often led to brain damage and death.
"High Fat and Seizure
Butter, whipping cream, and bacon? For kids with severe
epilepsy, an unusual high-fat diet developed at Hopkins is
proving nothing short of a miracle.
"The Tool of
...One that unlocks proteins, and therefore the genetic
code. Hopkins researcher George Rose has learned how
proteins "read" the genetic code of DNA, to create the very
stuff of life.
Scholars credit John Franklin Jameson more than any other
individual for creating an academic profession of history in
the United States. Diary excerpts from Jameson's years at
Hopkins reveal an uncertain young man who was relentlessly
critical of his colleagues--and of himself.
"In Search of Brother
No journalist has persisted in covering Cambodia like Nate
Thayer. His doggedness paid off last summer when he came
face to face with the elusive Pol Pot.
Wayne Smith has been called the dean of Castro's apologists
by some, an enemy of the Cuban Revolution by others. He is
unperturbed. "Right-minded people know that my position is
really sensible," he says.
Anthropologist Sidney Mintz has written the book (two of
them, in fact) on food, what it reveals about culture, and
how it affects history.
"The Story That Doesn't
Mention the name of alumnus John Mauchly and you're apt to
be met with a blank stare. Find out how one of the 20th
centurys' great inventors slipped into obscurity.
