1969 Press Photo Philip Blaiberg heart-transplant

Every photo in our collection is an original vintage print from a newspaper or news service archive, not a digital image. Please see our FAQ for more information.

Caption: Philip Blaiberg, one of the world's first heart-transplant patients, and a laboratory rat: The transplant surgery made headlines and gave the patient two extra years of life, but the undramatic public-health advances needed to cut the rat population and its death-causing disease have not kept up.

The front and back of this photograph are pictured below.
