ABSTRACT
Murphy, William Parry (1892-1987), an American physician, shared the 1934 Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine with George Richards Minot and George Hoyt Whipple for their work in proving that a diet high in liver cured pernicious anemia, a disorder that had almost always been fatal. Pernicious anemia is characterized by a great reduction in the number of red blood cells; those red blood cells that are produced are abnormally large and defective in shape.
