Dr. Hugh James Davis Jr., 69, the gynecologist who invented the birth control device known as the Dalkon shield. Although he was a pioneer in laparoscopy and held more than 30 patents on medical instruments used in abdominal surgery, Davis was most praised--and most reviled--over the intrauterine device. The Food and Drug Administration suspended use of the Dalkon shield in 1974 after 11 deaths and 209 cases of spontaneous abortion. It was taken off the market in 1984.
