Dr. Edward T. Tyler - Our Founder
The Tyler Medical Clinic was founded in the early 1940's by Dr. Edward T. Tyler. Dr. Tyler himself had experienced the stress and pressures of infertility. In the early 40's, Dr. Tyler founded the Tyler Clinic in Westwood. It has remained in the same location since that time. Dr. Tyler also started Family Planning Clinics in the greater Los Angeles area and became the first Medical Director of "Family Planning Centers of Los Angeles".
Throughout his professional life, he was closely affiliated with the Department of Medicine and the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology of the UCLA Medical School. He served in numerous functions for a variety of professional and lay societies and presided over courses dealing both with the population problems and infertility. He was a member of the World Health Organization's scientific group studying fertility. In the late 50's, he became one of the directors of the then young American Fertility Society which has now developed into the second largest association of obstetricians and gynecologists in this country. He also became a director of the Pacific Coast Fertility Society and served as its president in 1960 and 1961. He was a member and in many instances an honorary member of approximately 24 national as well as international societies and associations.
Dr. Tyler has authored some 200 scientific papers. To name a few....
Ä As early as 1947, he published an in depth study on spermatogenesis
(production of sperm) and therapy of infertility.
Ä In 1961, he published a well known book, "Sterility: Office Management
of the Infertile Couple" and contributed to various other textbooks.
Ä In the mid-60's, he published a report on the use of injectable medication
enhancing fertility in infertile patients.
He has produced several motion pictures for physicians as well as the lay public. He was a recipient of fourteen awards and honors bestowed on him by national as well as international associations. Even at the time of his untimely death, he was actively pursuing studies of human conception.
His interests and skills also reached outside the medical field. He was a member of the Writer's Guild of America and wrote for many television and radio programs, including the popular "Groucho Marx Show".
Dr. Edward T. Tyler and his wife Lilian were optimists and possibly because of this, they were quite successful in many of their activities, including the resolution of their own infertility problems, ending with a family of four children.
