|Title:||R. Norris Wolfenden, M.D.: the medical episode|
|Author:||David M. Damkaer|

Richard Norris Wolfenden was a complex and cryptic man. His path crossed with mine 50 years after his death, in a completely different field and long after that which is stressed here. As a marine zoologist, I never intended to document Wolfenden's medical career, but the apparent lack of biographical information among even those who should have known him best, encouraged this essay. Fate more than anything else has granted me the possibility and the privilege.
