In July 1990 Dr. John David Gordon started his Ob Gyn internship at Stanford University Medical Center. As the year progressed, Dr Gordon starting formulating an idea of creating a handbook that would aid in the transition from medical school to residency….With the support of Dr Jan Rydfors (a Chief Resident) the two of them created a small handbook for the incoming interns that would arrive in July 1991. Dr. Gordon printed out 4 copies on a dot matrix printer and the rest is history with the resulting book now known as “The Little Red Book” or more formally as Obstetrics, Gynecology & Infertility.
The road to success was a bit bumpy. Although the Stanford Medical Bookstore initially played the part of publisher (as did Blackwell Scientific Publishing briefly)….by 1994 Dr. Gordon realized that starting his own medical publishing company made the most sense. However, at the time he was a starving Fellow in Reproductive Endocrinology at UCSF. So he did what most nice young doctor’s do when strapped for cash…he asked his parents. With their $20,000 he started Scrub Hill Press.
The name Scrub Hill Press was in reference to the summer home that Dr. Gordon’s father, Dr. Edward T Gordon, had built in Chatham, MA in 1973. That home on Cape Cod was named after the scrub pines on the property and of course, in reference to the elder Dr. Gordon’s career as a General Surgeon. Since 1994, Scrub Hill Press has been dedicated to publishing affordable, well-referenced medical handbooks. The 25th Anniversary Edition (7th Edition) of the “Little Red Book” is a testimony to the love and support of Dr. and Mrs. Edward T. Gordon.
