Todd died relatively young but not before he found a collaborator in Arthur Hawley Sanford for the sixth edition in 1929. "Todd and Sanford" was the definitive reference in clinical laboratories throughout the 60's, 70's and (perhaps) 80's until the names became buried and largely forgotten beneath generations of successive editors, although there is always some historical homage paid in introductions.
The current edition (22nd/2012) bears the name of Henry who took over editorship in 1969 with the 14th edition.
I am unclear whether or not one can even purchase this edition in the elephantine printed format that we dinosaurs love so much.

The first edition of what has become the clinical laboratory's bible . Twenty-some editions later Dt Todd 's book remains a valuable resource. Fascinatiing! This edition reminds us of how far we've advanced.
