Title

The Sexual Behavior of Primates

Subject

Rock, John, 1890-1984
Lecture notes
Sexual behavior in animals

Description

In response to the 1929 NCHM survey, Harvard Medical School’s Dean David Edsall reported, “The men are taught something of the methods of contraception and sterilization during their regular course work, but there is no specific class in it.” Dr. Arthur T. Hertig recalled Rock’s lecturing about the taboo subject as early as 1928. As these lecture notes illustrate, Rock would occasionally integrate such material into his lectures about primates thus stepping around the legal barriers.
