Dates of existence



Williams McKim Marriott was a pediatrician who was considered as one of the greatest influences in the field of pediatrics during the first half of the 20th century. Marriott was born in Baltimore on March 5, 1885 and was educated at Marston's School for Boys, University of North Carolina, and Cornell Medical School. He first came to Washington University as an instructor in biological chemistry in 1910, but he soon resigned four years later to join the Department of Pediatrics at Johns Hopkins University.

In 1917, Washington University hired him again to become a professor of pediatrics and physician-in-chief for St. Louis Children's Hospital. Marriott later became the dean of the School of Medicine in 1923, which he served until his resignation in July 1936 to become the dean and professor of research medicine at University of California School of Medicine. He died on November 11, 1936 in San Francisco. Amongst his contributions to medicine are Recent Advances in Chemistry in Relation to Medical Practice (1928) and Infant Nutrition (1930).
