Daniel W. Collison MD


Clarence S. Livingood and his mentors, Pillsbury and Sulzberger, wrote the Manual of Dermatology, a book that was the dermatologic handbook of choice for thousands of medical officers in World War II. By virtue of its wide distribution among a variety of physicians practicing in the medical boom of the 40s, 50s, and 60s, this book (and its formulary) was one of the most influential dermatologic texts of the 20th century. Livingood would repeat the strategies employed in writing this book over and over in his long career advancing dermatology among American medical specialties.
