Who is the father of HPT
Every now and then I see Thomas Gilbert referenced as the “father of HPT.” Not sure where that got started. In 2007 Don Tosti and Roger Kaufman did a Commentary on “Who Is The ‘Real’ Farther of HPT? I have attached the article here for your consideration and perhaps shed some light on the history of NSPI/ISPI. Both Tosti and Kaufman attended the first NSPI conference and in their article with respect to Gilbert disagree with this idea. Tosti and Kaufman “…identify a number of other contributors who were significant and even crucial to the early development and expansion of the technology.” Take a look at the article Real Father of HPT – Kaufman-Tosti and see others that contributed to the early development of HPT and PI.
What other names would you add to the list?
