You missed this one BrianNY!

Here we go:

"I grew up in a tough Bronx neighborhood during the 1950's. A popular "hanging out" activity was to stand on a corner with some friends and re-create the "barbershop quartet" with some new modern songs. I guess we were pretty good at it and we began performing in clubs for spending money. One day we were discovered and signed to a recording contract. The producers liked the groups original name and allowed us to keep it. Since I was the lead singer, the group included my name first and the name of the Bronx street we sang on".

Who am I?

HOLD THE PRESS

Dr. Semmelweis was the person that realized that handwashing was important FIRST- not Nightingale. He worked in a hospital in Vienna and at that hospital the death rate of mothers dying during/after child birth were 5 times higher than those mothers who had delivered at home. The reason this was because the students who were delivering babies were also doing work with cadavers (for anatomy class) prior to making their rounds in the maternity ward. He realized this when a student working with the cadavers cut himself and displayed the same symptoms as the mothers did right before they died (shortly after the student died I beeive). When he made his students wash their hands before delivering babies, the death rate went down.. however at the time other doctors at that time thought it was rediculous and ostrisized him

Had to point that out =o)
carry on

Lyquid, you're absolutely correct with Semmeweis' history. It was around the same time 1854? that Nightingale was credited with the handwashing at military hospitals and was credited for the "Polar-Area diagram". Nightingale was more "publicized" and somehow became more popular.

Thanks for clearing this up!

You needn't be so generous. If you have it, let it fly.
