Dr. Eleanor Bliss was a professor of medicine at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore in 1939 and with another doctor published a major work on sulfa compounds that helped it to become a miracle drug against some forms of pneumonia and bacterial infections.

Her work gave the medical profession a window on the modern world of antibiotics and helped save thousands of lives in World War II.

In 1952, Dr. Bliss returned to her alma matter (Bryn Mawr College), as the graduate dean and biology professor.
