|Contribution||Presented clinical evidence of the contagiousness of puerperal fever.|
|Notes||See page 396 in Harvey Graham's Eternal Eve, 1951. In an episode in England, one midwife had a very bad record regarding the fever, while 25 of her colleagues had good records over the same period. K. C. Carter, in book review (Bull. Hist. Med. 70: 1996) says Roberton was among those mentioned in a 1995 book but whose contributions re childbed fever are merely of antiquarian interest.|
