The Society mounted a successful Papers Session at the April 2009 meeting of the American Association for the History of Medicine, in Cleveland.
[1 June 2010] I’ve taken down all links to authors’ works previously posted here. I put them up in the spirit of scholarly collegiality, but some cheesy individual(s), in complete disrespect of scholarly work–and copyright law–purloined some of the material and posted on a site for sale–to the profit of the purloiner, not the scholar. A Pox on them! and Anathema!
Patricia Ruston, RN, PhD, Associate Professor, Brigham Young University, Salt Lake City, presented Three Navy Nurses–Combat Experience and its Aftermath. She discussed her oral history findings with Navy nurses who served in Vietnam and / or Iraq.
W Patrick Monahan, PhD, CLS, SBB, Professor of Anesthesiology, University of Florida, College of Medicine, Jacksonville FL, reported on Navy Corpmen in Vietnam in which he drew upon his personal experience, and discussed the service of several heroic individuals.
Steven Lomazow, MD, Assistant Professor of Neurology, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York City, discussed The Untold Neurologic Disease of Franklin Delanoe Roosevelt, in which he detailed a well documented trail of circumstantial evidence leading to his conclusion that FDR died of complications due to metastatic melanoma.
