Historical or Biographical Note

Dr. Grant Liddle (1921-1989), a Vanderbilt professor, was an international leader in endocrinology research and education, and noted for his research in hypertension, Cushing's syndrome, diabetes, and pharmacology of steroid hormones. He is credited with having devised the modern approach to the diagnosis of disorders of the adrenal glands.

Grant Liddle was born in American Fork, Utah in 1921. He graduated valedictorian from the University of Utah in 1943. Immediately upon graduating he was drafted by the Army and sent to medical school at the University of California, San Francisco, where he received his MD in 1948. After graduation he became the first research fellow in the newly established Metabolic Research Unit at UCSF. In 1953 he became the senior assistant surgeon at the National Heart Institute at NIH.

In 1956, Dr. Hugh Morgan offered Dr. Liddle the position of chief of the Endocrine Service at Vanderbilt. Dr. Grant Liddle also served as chair of the Department of Medicine from 1968 until 1983. He was also President of both the American Society for Clinical Investigation (1966-1967) and The Endocrine Society (1973-1974). He became a member of the National Academy of Science in 1982.
