Jonathan Cohen (1915-2003) was Assistant Clinical Professor of Orthopedic Surgery at Harvard Medical School and Children's Hospital in Boston. He also taught at Tufts University School of Medicine, to which he generously bequeathed his personal medical library. Cohen's research focused on the effects of chemical build up in bones and the development of chemicals for use in prostheses. Cohen served as an Army physician with the 105th General Hospital during World War II where he and his colleagues developed the mobile army surgical unit (MASH) that could be dismantled, transported, and assembled in 90 minutes.
