Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Helen Flanders Dunbar (May 14, 1902 - August 21, 1959) - later known as H. Flanders Dunbar - is an important early figure in U.S. psychosomatic medicine and psychobiology, as well as being an important advocate of physicians and clergy co-operating in their efforts to care for the sick. Eldest child of a well-to-do family - her father was the electrical engineer and patent attorney Francis William Dunbar (1868-1939) and her mother was the professional genealogist Edith Vaughn Flanders (1871-1963) - Helen Flanders Dunbar was born in Chicago, Illinois on May 14, 1902. As a child she suffered from malnutrition; and despite Dunbar's later misleading claims that she had suffered poliomyelitis, and a childhood pediatrician's diagnosis of a muscular form of rickets ("rachitic pseudo-paralysis"), it seems far more likely that she was displaying what was known as "failure to thrive."show more
