About the author (2001)

Jack Dreyfus was born in Montgomery, Alabama on August, 28, 1913. He received a bachelor's degree from Lehigh University. Before joining a Wall Street brokerage firm, he worked as a candy salesman and as an industrial designer. He was one of the most successful investors in the 1950s and 1960s. He was credited with bringing Americans to the stock market by creating the Dreyfus Fund, one of the first widely marketed mutual funds. He sold his mutual fund company in 1970. Dreyfus suffered from depression. When the traditional treatments failed, he asked his doctor to prescribe him the anti-epileptic drug, Dilantin. After being cured, he became convinced of the drug's benefits for a wide variety of ills and pains, including obsessive-compulsive disorder, motion sickness and attention-deficit disorder, and spent more than four decades trying to publicize its benefits. He wrote several books on the subject including A Remarkable Medicine Has Been Overlooked and established the Dreyfus Health Foundation to pursue other medical applications for Dilantin. He died on March 27, 2009 at the age of 95.
