The article features the achievements of pediatric cardiologist James William Brown. Brown was known as the greatest contributor in the understanding of congenital cardiac malformations. He was appointed as head of the newly created Regional Cardiovascular Center in Sheffield, England because of his very high repute subsequent to the publication of the two editions of his book "Congenital Heart Disease", the second clinically oriented textbook to appear devoted to congenital cardiac anomalies.
