Horatio Robinson Storer

Author Code: AHOS

Born: Feb. 27, 1830 - Boston, Massachusetts, USA

Died: Sep. 18, 1922 - Newport, Rhode Island, USA

Educated at the Boston Latin School, Harvard College and the Harvard Medical School, Storer received his M.D. in 1853. His dissertation on the History and Resources of the Valley of the Mississippi won the Bowdoin Prize in 1850. He traveled to Russia with his brother Frank in 1847 and in 1849, the pair went to Labrador. In 1851, he was elected to the Boston Society of Natural History. He married Emily Gilmore in 1853. He then studied for a year in Edinburgh under James Young Simpson. He began his medical practice in Boston in 1855 specializing in gynecology and obstetrics, which he is credited with having been the first to do so. A fervent anti-abortionist, Storer began the physician's crusade against abortion which received the backing of the American Medical Association. In 1865, he published Why Not? A Book for Every Woman, aimed at informing women about the problems of abortion. He founded the Gynecological Society of Boston in 1869, the first such society in America. After the death of his wife in 1872, Storer became very ill from a surgical infection and was forced to retire from medical practice. He married his sister-in-law, Caroline, in late 1872, but she died only two short years later. He traveled around Europe until 1876 when he returned to America and settled in Newport, Rhode Island. He married for the third time in 1876 to Frances MacKenzie, the founder of a Franciscan Hospital for Women. He converted to Roman Catholicism and became involved in Catholic organisations. He served on the boards of the Newport Medical Society, Newport Natural History Society and the Newport Historical Society. His other works include Observations of the Fishes of Nova Scotia and Labrador (1851), Criminal Abortion: Its Nature, Its Evidence and Its Laws (1868), Causation, Course and Treatment of Reflex Insanity in Women (1871), Female Hygiene (1872) and Medals of Benjamin Rush, Obstetrician (1889).
