Washington University Celebrates Masters and Johnson 50th Anniversary with Tribute to Showtime Series and Book.

Washington University in St. Louis sends along these photos from the 50th Anniversary celebration of Masters and Johnson held there earlier this month. It featured myself and Michelle Ashford, the showrunner for Showtime's Masters of Sex, the Emmy-winning drama based on my bio of the two researchers. 
For years, Wash U shunned Masters and Johnson and didn't make any mention of them in the university's history book. I'm delighted to say the success of the TV show and book prompted the university to embrace M&J's legacy, arguably the most remarkable scientific endeavor ever conducted there. The Wash U folks were very hospitable and I'm particularly grateful to Prof. Susan Stiritz for prompting this tribute. I was delighted to be on stage with Michelle who just finished editing Season 4's finale. Hopefully Showtime approves a fifth and final season.
