about

In 1882, Robert Koch discovered the TB bacillus, signaling a redirection of medical thinking from the trial and error guesswork of individual experience toward medical care based upon science. Using the career of Edward Livingston Trudeau (1848-1915), a recognized leader in the American crusade against tuberculosis, Professor Ellison examines the development of medical science as a human process.
