Katharine J. Scott Bishop (1889-1976), American physician. Bishop graduated from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in 1915. She moved to the University of California, Berkeley, where she taught histology in the Medical School's Department of Anatomy until 1923. During that time she also undertook research, along with anatomist Herbert McLean Evans, that showed that rats feed only lard as a source of fat could not reproduce. However, lipid extracts from grains would restore their fertility.
