Biographical history

William T. K. Bryan got a bachelor's degree in 1929 from Washington University and graduated in 1933 from the School of Medicine. After serving an internship in surgery at Barnes Hospital and a residency in the department of otolaryngology, he opened a private practice in St. Louis specializing in medicine of the ear, nose, and throat. He was on the staff of Barnes, Deaconess, and St. Luke's hospitals for more than 40 years. He also maintained a research laboratory with his wife, Marian P. Bryan, in the department of otolaryngology at Washington University School of Medicine. The two developed improved diagnostic methods in the field and wrote many articles in medical journals. Bryan also designed several new instruments for magnification in operative laryngology. Source: St. Louis Post-Dispatch Obituary, October 14, 1987.
