- David Y. Cooper
Minot, George Richards (02 December 1885–25 February 1950), physician and pathologist, was born in Boston, Massachusetts, the son of James Jackson Minot, a physician, and Elizabeth Frances Whitney. His parents, believing Minot frail during his childhood, took him to Florida or California to spend winters. There Minot developed a lifelong interest in natural history; while still in his teens he published two papers, “The Chrysalis of Malitaea Gabbi” (1902) and “The Tussock Moth Peril” (1903). In 1904 Minot entered Harvard, after finishing his secondary education at a Boston private school. He received his B.A. in 1908; in 1912 he received his M.D. from the Harvard Medical School....
