Biographical Note

Although Carl Gottfried Hartman, 1879-1968, was born in Reinbeck, Iowa, he grew up and was educated in Texas. In 1915 he was awarded the University of Texas' first PhD degree. He taught zoology at the University of Texas from 1912 to 1925 before leaving to teach at the University of Illinois. Specializing in mammalian reproduction, Hartman authored Physiology (1913), The human body and its enemies: a textbook of hygiene sanitation (1914), The anatomy of the Rhesus monkey (1933), Time of ovulation in women (1936), and Possums (1952) in addition to more than 200 articles. He served as associate director of the Ortho Research Foundation and was an authoritative voice in the planned parenthood movement. In 1949 Dr. Hartman received the Lasker Award given by Planned Parenthood - World Population and after his death the Society for the Study of Reproduction initiated the annual Carl G. Hartman Award.
