About the Book

In some respect each of this collection of essays pertains to New Jersey’s medical history. Although each chapter stands alone and may differ in style and tone, together they provide a narrative history of medical practice from pre-Colonial times almost to the present. The narrative depicts a kaleidoscope of medical personalities - some heroic, others distinctly not.
