Dr. Blackfan was recognized as one of the outstanding pediatricians in the country. He headed or participated in many government and international commissions on child health, and taught at the University of Cincinnati, Johns Hopkins, Washington University, and the Polyclinic Hospital in Philadelphia before coming to Harvard as professor of Pediatrics in 1923.
