What Pearl Harbor Day Means To Gynecologist

Pearl Harbor was being attacked, and a young Hungarian chemist George Rosenkranz was in Havana waiting to travel to the University of Quito in Equador to become a professor of chemistry. But the ship didn't come, and he took a job in a local pharmacy, and through great entrepreneurial skills began to develop a business in manufacturing chemicals. He made vitamin A from shark liver oil, and began to eek out small amounts of testosterone and progesterone from sarsaparilla roots from Mexico when he became noticed by the company Syntex. After they recruited him, to work with the renown chemist Russel Marker, they also landed Carl Djerassi a Nazi refugee. The group formed the nucleus of all research that lead to the development of the modern oral contraceptive pill.
