A Proposal for a New Method of Evaluation of the Newborn Infant - Original Paper's Title Page

Virginia Apgar, M.D., New York, N. Y.

Department of Anesthesiology, Columbia University, College of Physicians and Surgeons and the Anesthesia Service, The Presbyterian Hospital.

The first page of Virginia Apgar's 1953 paper defining the Apgar Score for newborns. Evidently, considerably more attention was paid to clarity of writing, visual presentation, and esthetic typographic concerns in Dr. Apgar's era than is the case today.
