Who was E. Lloyd Du Brul?
Du Brul, along with Harry Sicher, wrote the textbook Sicher's and Du Brul's Oral Anatomy, considered to be the definitive oral anatomy text. The book has been published in English, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, and Spanish. Du Brul also authored or co-authored four other books and contributed to seven others, including writing the "Form and Function, Biological" section of the 15th edition of Encyclopaedia Britannica, 1974. He contributed many articles, abstracts, and book reviews to scientific journals from the 1940s through the 1980s.
His teaching career included appointments at New York-Presbyterian Hospital, 1939–42, and Polyclinic Hospital, 1940–42, both in New York City; and the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry, 1946-77. At the College, he founded the Department of Oral Anatomy and served as its head from 1964-1977.
Well known for his imaginative teaching style, Du Brul pioneered the concept that, in biomechanics, function follows form. A student of mechanics, architecture, and engineering, he was the first dental instructor to apply these disciplines to the understanding of jaw and skull movement.
