X-linked bulbar and spinal muscular atrophy was comprehensively described by William R. Kennedy, and later the syndrome carried his name. It was the first triplet-repeat disease to be discovered. Recent transgenic experiments have shed some light on the underlying pathogenesis. This article considers the historical background of these discoveries and focuses on direct quotations of seminal contributions.
