John C. Herweg Oral History (OH079)

  • OH079
  • Collection
  • March 2005

The interviewer asked John Herweg to discuss his experiences at St. Louis Children's Hospital during the Alexis Hartmann era, 1936-early 1960s. As a medical student at Washington University in 1942-1945. He mentions his first wife, Janet Scovill, who had finished her pediatric residency at Children's before him. Janet died in 1958. He also speaks of his present wife Dottie Glahn, who was head nurse of the infant ward at St. Louis Children's Hospital from 1947-1959. The interviewer asked him his recollections of Mrs. Langenberg, Gracie Jones and other women on women on the Board of Children's hospital. He also briefly discussed interactions with Estelle Claiborne, the hospital administrator. He recalls that World War II's major effect on St. Louis Children's Hospital was reduction of the number of house officers. The residents who were in charge of the hospital during the nighttime hours were consequently overworked. Concerning the Butler Ward, the segregated ward for African-Americans, he admits the house officers might have integrated Children's Hospital earlier. He thought integration came about when Dave Golden called up Hartmann later and said he wanted to put an African American patient on a ward by treatment needed rather than in the Butler ward. Hartmann agreed and Herwig thought that was the beginning of integration of St. Louis Children's Hospital.

Pediatric Palliative Care Oral History Project

  • OH154
  • Collection
  • 2019

In this oral history project, Dr. Bryan Sisk performed interviews with 35 individuals with notable roles in the development of pediatric palliative care as a discipline and a philosophy. Dr. Sisk was a clinical fellow in pediatric hematology and oncology when he developed this project and performed the interviews. He had rigorous training in qualitative research and a strong interest in history related to children’s pain and suffering. Selection of participants was based on review of the historical literature for a prior publication related to this area (*). Additionally, Dr. Sisk asked interviewees for recommendations for other potential participants. During interviews, he followed an interview guide but he also allowed the interviewee to redirect the conversation.

These interviews were all recorded remotely, either via telephone or video-conferencing software. Audio files were professionally transcribed and proofed for grammar and accuracy. Interviewees were allowed to review these transcripts and make grammatical corrections. Also, interviewees were allowed to suggest additions or retractions from the transcript to ensure their meaning was clear. We marked all additions with brackets and all retractions with ellipses. In consultation with the Washington University Institutional Review Board (IRB), this project was not deemed to be human subjects research, and thus was not subject to review by the IRB.
