William Augustus Hinton Physician

William Augustus Hinton (15 December 1883, Chicago, Illinois – 1959, Canton, Massachusetts) was a black bacteriologist, pathologist and educator. Hinton was the first black professor in the history of Harvard University. A pioneer in the field of public health, Hinton developed a test for syphilis which, because of its accuracy, was used by the United States Public Health Service. He studied at the University of Kansas before transferring to Harvard University, where he earned a B.S. degree in 1905. Following his graduation, he taught in Tennessee and Oklahoma. During the summers he continued his studies in bacteriology and physiology at the University of Chicago. In 1909, Hinton enrolled in Harvard Medical School. With the aid of two prestigious scholarships he was able to graduate with honors in 1912. Hinton returned to Harvard Medical School in 1918 as an instructor in preventive medicine and hygiene. In 1921 he began teaching bacteriology and immunology--subjects he would teach at Harvard for over thirty years. Hinton became internationally known as an expert in the diagnosis and treatment of syphilis.
