Minato, Kiyoko

  • Person
  • 1926-

Minato was a “genetics” nurse in the early years of the ABCC and Chief of Nurses for many years. She helped doctors collect information from midwives about the condition of newborns and assisted at follow-up housecalls. About 30% of newborns in Hiroshima and Nagasaki were examined by ABCC pediatricians up through 1953. She stated in a 2017 interview (she was 92 years old) that she trained in “pre-war German medicine” and found American medicine quite different.
