Philip Showalter Hench

Born 28 Feb 1896; died 30 Mar 1965 at age 69. American physician who was one of the leaders in American rheumatology. He shared the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 1950 for discoveries relating to the hormones of the adrenal cortex, their structure and biological effects (with Edward C.
