|Contribution||Contagiousness of puerperal fever.|
|Notes||John Clarke, obstetrician of London. Date is provisional. Garrison gives 1767-88. K. C. Carter, in book review (Bull. Hist. Med. 70: 1996) says Clarke was among those whose contributions re childbed fever are merely of antiquarian interest. See also page 393 in Graham's Eternal Eve, 1951.|
