Dorothy Reed Mendenhall
“Physical and mental growth come best where the individual is not hampered by the pressure of other personalities. The trend today of the nursery school to socialize the child may in the future turn back a hundred years to giving the young organism an untrammeled place to develop without outside pressure.”
Dorothy Reed Mendenhall, U.S. pediatrician, discoverer of the Reed-Sternberg cell
(1874 - 1964)
Full name: Dorothy Mabel Reed Mendenhall, M.D.
