Rejuvenation Method of Jewish Physicians Gains

March 30, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The popularization of the method of “rejuvenation” or the “retardation of the senile processes” originated by the Jewish surgeon and biologist Eugen Steinach of Vienna is only a question of time both here and abroad, according to the New York Times.

This opinion is expressed in a report in the Times telling of a Steinach operation performed on Colonel E.H.R. Green, millionaire son of Hetty Green. The Times declares that the operation performed some time ago on Harold Mc Cormick of Chicago was also one of these operations and not a glandular transplantation as had teen rumored.
