Talk:Gregory Goodwin Pincus
|WikiProject Biography / Science and Academia||(Rated Start-class)|
It is entirely misleading that this article says "Pincus, however, dismissed these accounts of side effects and occasional pregnancy, dismissing the concern of his female colleagues Dr. Edris Rice-Wray and Adeleine Satterthwaite". It is clear from Gregory Pincus' letters and papers (available for public viewing at the Library of Congress) that he not only had concern for users of the pill, but consideration for his colleagues. While it is important to be aware of issues of sexism, classism and racism in history, I fear that this excerpt's author has allowed her distaste for 50's era morals to color her portrayal of Dr. Pincus' character. This is both unfortunate and inappropriate.
Not "Envoid", but "Enovid"
"Envoid" is incorrect, see http://www.fda.gov/oc/history/makinghistory/enovid.html -- 126.96.36.199 15:30, 26 March 2006 (UTC)
This page really needs a rewrite... there's a lot of missing info. I'll try to update it when I can - just thought it should be noted.

The Wikipedia article itself had different information than the credible site, American National Biography. The article lacks certain details. For example, we do not learn from Wikipedia that Pincus was a National Research Council Fellow. We learn from ANB that Pincus receives recognition for his rabbit experiment, but also that the recognition was received due to a miscommunication. ANB gives us the procedure for making the pill, and also for conduction the in vitro experiment. This Wikipedia article lacked details about his family life, the awards he's been given throughout his career, and his creation of the Laurentian Hormone Conference. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kthomas823 (talk • contribs) 17:38, 6 November 2013 (UTC)
