Taymor, Melvin L.
I grew up in a small New England city in the 1920s and 1930s. Compared to today, life was tranquil and easy. My father had had a small business which survived the Great Depression. When it came to a career choice it was a decision between going into my father’s business or medicine. I was drawn to medicine because it seemed to me that it provided a more intellectual life than business, as well as independence, and the potential for many great satisfactions. At that time I had envisioned myself as a country doctor. However, during my residency and fellowship many serendipitous events brought me to academic medicine to infertility and to reproductive medicine.
