Anyone ever heard of him?

I have been looking for this for a long time. Prevention Magazine ran an article on him in the early-mid 1970s.

I wonder what happened to him. He sparked a heated discussion in my Women's Studies Class in 1975. The case at least sparked the move to licensing midwives in CA. The state had a law regarding midwives, but no state test had been proctored since 1945. So it was kind of a Wild West situation for midwives - most of them serviced the migrant workers community at the time.

Another midwife told me he was a child molester. Not sure about that, but it would explain why he was in the US delivering babies and not in Ireland. He was 46 at the time. He would be 91 now. He was in the San Diego, CA area when this took place.
