Curtis Lester Mendelson, who first described the pneumonia called "Mendelson's syndrome." He studied at Cornell University "where he completed his medical education in 1938. He subsequently received his clinical education at New York Hospital, a hospital strongly affiliated with Cornell University, and immediately devoted his efforts to his specialty, gynecology and obstetrics. He served with this hospital from 1938 to 1959. Between 1932 and 1945 66 cases of aspiration had occurred in obstetrical surgery at New York Hospital. Since the aspiration was obvious in many cases, these pulmonary complications thus were given a number of conspicuously differing and imaginative diagnoses. In order to elucidate the problem, Mendelson began collaborating with a female colleague, May William, who was in charge of the pediatric clinic at New York Hospital. At this rheumatic valve anomalies were not uncommon. Mendelson became involved when girls in this situation reached mature age and became pregnant. Mendelson recognized that he had to achieve more thorough insight in cardiology and subsequently worked in a number of clinics in the US, obtaining a license as a specialist in cardiology. Through his newly gained knowledge and cooperation with thorax surgeons, Mendelson's work contributed significantly to improving the prognosis for pregnant women with valve anomalies. It was a pioneering effort." – Whonamedit.com
