Re: Bodians stain

John Hoffman sez:

>>i thought boudain was a Cajun sausage.<<

'Deed it is, John, and a delicious one with beans and rice.

But David Bodian, an anatomist at Johns Hopkins Hospital about half a century 
ago and a major contributor to the CNS pathology of poliomyelitis, modified 
the old Ramon y Cajal silver stains so that they worked on paraffin sections, 
a noteworthy achievement. He was still working when I was a resident there in 
the 1960's, and I regret that I never met him.
