The first edition of Diseases of the Newbornwas published in 1960 by Dr. Alexander J. Schaffer, a well-known Baltimore  pediatrician  who  coined  the  term neonatology to describe this emerging pediatric subspecialty that concentrated on “the art and science of diagnosis and treatment of  disorders  of  the  newborn  infant.”  Schaffer’s  first  edition was used mainly for diagnosis, but also included reference to neonatal care practices (i.e., the use of antibiotics, temperature  regulation,  and  attention  to  feeding  techniques)—practices that had led to a remarkable decrease in the infant mortality rate in the United States, from 47 deaths per 1000 live births in 1940 to 26 per 1000 in 1960. But a pivotal year for the new field of neonatology came 3 years later in 1963, with the birth of President John F. Kennedy’s  son,  Patrick  Bouvier  Kennedy,  at  36  weeks’ gestation (i.e., late preterm). His death at 3 days of age, from complications of hyaline membrane disease, accelerated  the  development  of  infant  ventilators  that,  coupled with micro-blood gas analysis and expertise in the use of umbilical  artery  catheterization,  led  to  the  development of intensive care for newborns in the 1960s on both sides of the Atlantic. Advances in neonatal surgery and cardiology, along with further technological innovations, stimulated the development of neonatal intensive care units and regionalization of care for sick newborn infants over the next several decades. These developments were accompanied by an explosion of neonatal research activity that led 
to  improved  understanding  of  the  pathophysiology  and genetic basis of diseases of the newborn, which in turn has led to spectacular advances in neonatal diagnosis and therapeutics—particularly  for  preterm  infants.  These  efforts led to continued improvements in the infant mortality rate in the United States, from 26 deaths per 1000 livebirths in 1960 to 6.5 per 1000 in 2004. Current research efforts are  focused  on  decreasing  the  striking  global  disparities in infant mortality rates, decreasing neonatal morbidities, advancing neonatal therapeutics, and preventing prematurity and newborn diseases. We neonatologists would like to be put out of business one day
