Charles Freeman Geschickter was born in Washington, D.C. back in 1901. I don’t have any information as to his childhood. He studied as an undergraduate in Engineering and Educational Psychology earing him a MA and MS degree. He was awarded a scholarship to Columbia University. While there his professor arranged for him to be admitted to medical studies at John Hopkins University.
He was invited to work on multiple myeloma studies. In 1928, he Charles and Murray Copeland published a survey of 425 recorded cases dating back to 1848. In 1929, he was given surgical fellowships at the Mayo Clinic. In 1935, he was appointed pathologist to St. Agnes hospital in Baltimore. This led to his major 100-page work first published in 1943, Diseases of the brest: diagnosis, pathology treatment. He died in 1987.
What you may not know about Charles is that he also worked for the CIA. The CIA funded his private research in defenses against interrogation and brainwashing. Of course, Georgetown University denied any knowledge, nothing could be proven, however the CIA provided over 2 million dollars to Georgetown. One just never knows what goes on or where the government is conducting such experiments, which in some cases is a good thing.
