Berton Roueche

Clarence Berton Rouech, Jr. ( roo-SHAY; April 16, 1910 April 28, 1994) was an American medical writer who wrote for The New Yorker magazine for almost fifty years. He also wrote twenty books, including Eleven Blue Men (1954), The Incurable Wound (1958), Feral (1974), and The Medical Detectives (1980). An article he wrote for The New Yorker was made into the 1956 film Bigger Than Life, and many of the medical mysteries on the television show House were inspired by Rouech’s writings.
