There is a tantalising comment ("This has been one of the finest websites I have accessed.It should be an inspiration for other endeavors.") in a Ben Franklin guestbook at http://www.ushistory.org/franklin/guestbook/ entered by " Harold Melsheimer, 74 yo retired Gynecologist M.D. [01-26-2002] ".

The age is right (he was born in 1927 - see below ) ... and if it's our Dr Melsheimer, he must be online!

May 2011 update : Since 2007, Dr Melsheimer seems to have been living in the Woodland Hills, CA, with wife Bettye Jean . ( source )

He published in the Hawaii Medical Journal (Number 3, January-February 1958) , "Eclampsias and Toxemias of Pregnancy".
