Description

After World War II, Dickinson’s National Committee on Maternal Health and Planned Parenthood (the successor to Margaret Sanger’s American Birth Control League) asked the National Research Council to oversee a program of research in reproductive science and medicine. Rock was a founding member of the resulting Committee on Human Reproduction and wrote its research agenda. In 1948, the committee planned to support 10 research projects, including projects headed by Gregory Pincus, Rock, and Clarence J. Gamble. Rock would later head the first trial of progesterone and estrogen on a small group of women at the Free Hospital of women.
