Author Biography
Dubos, Rene J. (Author)
Gerald L. Geison, 1943 - 2001 Gerald L. Geison was born in 1943 in Savanna, Illinois. He earned his Bachelor's Degree from Beloit College in Beloit, Wisconsin and his Doctorate in History of Science and Medicine from Yale in 1970.

Geison accepted the position of professor in the history department at Princeton after the completion of his doctorate, where he remained for more than thirty years. In 1977 he was promoted to associate dean of the college and in 1980 was named director of Princeton's History of Science department. Over the course of his tenure at Princeton, Geison wrote 20 Dictionary of Scientific Biography articles and over 40 essays and book reviews. These earned him awards and lectures, as well as being named a visiting historical scholar at the National Library of Medicine and being offered a position as a member of the editorial board of The Journal of the History of Medicine and Allied Sciences.

Geison's book entitled "The Private Science of Louis Pasteur" was published in 1995, and noted for it's ethical accuracy of the scientist. In 1996, the American Association for the History of Medicine awarded him the William H. Welch medal for his book.
