Books, Health, and History

The New York Academy of Medicine's Center of Medicine and Public Health "promotes the scholarly and public understanding of the history of medicine and public health and the history of the book." On its blog, visitors can learn more about items in the the New York Academy's Library and the clues that archival materials provide about the history of health and medicine. For example, one recent post from Dr. Daniel Goldberg of the Center for Bioethics and Humanities at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus explores the library's collection of William J. Morton papers. Morton pioneered X-ray technology in the late nineteenth century. In another recent entry, science historian and philosopher Ann-Sophie Barwich writes about the history of the classification of smells, a topic she recently lectured on at the Academy. This engaging blog, updated several times a month, offers an enjoyable way to learn fascinating snippets of medical history.
