Dean and the Historian
Dean and the Historian: Their Lives and Times through Letters
Our Price: $24.95

William S. Middleton, a graduate of the Univ. of PA School of Med., taught thousands of students during his 63 years at the Univ. of Wisconsin (UW) School of Med. One of his most important decisions was to establish a medical history dep’t. and appoint as its first chair, Erwin Ackerknecht, the pioneering medical historian. The correspondence between the dean and the historian began in 1947 and continued until 1974. Both men fought for causes they believed in: Middleton for improved veterans’ healthcare, better training of physicians, and the establishment of medical libraries; and Ackernecht for a social view of medicine and rejection of fascism in education. The letters show how these two outstanding men viewed the world and viewed themselves, as they discuss their daily lives and concerns, and above all, their friendship. Illus.

Our Beloved Country: Civil War Pamphlets Published in Philadelphia
Our Price: $29.95

These Civil War pamphlets provide insight into the views of a northern city's Union supporters during a time of national reform and rebellion. They represent Philadelphia's intellectual output during the war and stands as evidence of the intellectual ferment the war engendered. They illustrate how pro-Union constituents tried to maintain a cohesive movement in Philadelphia while promoting national reunification. The twelve pamphlets and one hymn discuss victory and peace; liberty, unity, and the abolition of slavery; organizing support for the Union, Lincoln, and freed slaves; adjustments to the Constitution and justifications for suspension of habeas corpus; the merits of the Union League of Philadelphia’s cause; and medical remedies for soldiers.
