George Tyndall

American former gynecologist.

The historic taboo associated with the examination of female genitalia has long inhibited the science of gynaecology. This 1822 drawing by Jacques-Pierre Maygrier shows a "compromise" procedure, in which the physician is kneeling before the woman but cannot see her genitalia. Modern gynaecology no longer uses such a position.

On May 25, 2018 USC President C. L. Max Nikias resigned due to pressure from the USC community.
