Prince Albert Morrow
Biography of Prince Albert Morrow
Prince Albert Morrow attended the University Medical College in New York, receiving his doctorate in 1873. Following an education journey to Europe he settled in New York, where he primarily concerned himself with dermatology and syphilology, in 1884 becoming professor of these disciplines at University Bellevue Hospital Medical College.
Prince Albert Morrow translated works of the French dermatologist Jean Alfred Fournier (1832-1912), and he became the leading publicist of the syphilis problem. He was a main organiser in the struggle for sexual hygiene, as well as the American Society for Sanitary and Moral Prophylaxis (1905), to "prevent the spread of diseases which have their origin in the social evil."
This became a model for similar societies established in almost every state of the union.
1882-1892 Morrow was the publisher of Journal of Cutaneous and Venereal Diseases.
