Benjamin Elisha Dawson, M.A.[a 1], M.D.[a 2], (10 July 1852 in MO – 13 February 1922 in TX)[1], from Kansas City, MO, was President of the Eclectic Medical University.

Eclectic medicine was a branch of American medicine which made use of botanical remedies along with other substances and physical therapy practices, popular in the latter half of the 19th and first half of the 20th centuries.[2]

Circumcision promotion

In 1915, Dawson said that since the clitoral hood is the source of many neuroses, female circumcision is necessary (see publication).
