Frank Spooner Churchill, M.D., was born in Milton, Massachusetts on 26 August 1864, and died in Boston on 27 February 1946. He was educated at Harvard University, receiving his A.B. degree in 1886, and his M.D. in 1890. The most active years of his medical career were spent in Chicago, where he carried on an extensive private practice, but he also worked actively on the improvement of health conditions for all children, and in particular on the relationship between pediatrics and education. In addition to his private practice, Churchill served as medical inspector for the Chicago Board of Health, director of the Chicago Milk Commission, member of the Board of Directors of the Infant Welfare Society of Chicago and of the Juvenile Psychopathic Institute. He was attending pediatrician at Cook County Hospital and Presbyterian Hospital for many years, and attending pediatrician at Children's Memorial Hospital for ten years. He was also associate professor of Pediatrics at Rush Medical College. From 1911 to 1919 he was chief editor of the American Journal of Diseases of Children, and in 1917 served as the president of the American Pediatric Society.
