Doctoring the South: Southern Physicians and Everyday Medicine in the Mid-Nineteenth Century

By Steven M. Stowe | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

Many people have helped in the research and writing of this book, many more than I can hope to acknowledge here. I am grateful for funding received from the National Library of Medicine (#1R01LMO5334-01), the Indiana University Center for the History of Medicine, and Research and the University Graduate School at Indiana University, Bloomington. Kate Torrey at the University of North Carolina Press kept me going with critical support from the inception of this project.

This study had its beginning some years ago when I found myself teaching history in the Department of Humanities at the Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine in Hershey, Pennsylvania, where I got my feet wet in the modern world of medicine with the help of colleagues Al Vastyan and K.

I have appreciated, too, conversations with graduate students at Indiana over the years, especially with Roark Atkinson, Hyejung Grace Kong, and Lynn Pohl. In this regard, I am particularly beholden to Scott M. Stephan not only for his intellectual contributions but also for his invaluable research assistance.

My colleagues in the Department of History at Indiana helped me in countless ways, and I especially wish to thank John Bodnar, Ann Carmichael, Ellen Dwyer, Michael Grossberg, Jim Madison, Joanne Meyerowitz, and David Ransel for their interest and good advice. Elsewhere, colleagues in the Southern Intellectual History Circle and participants in the workshops and conferences where I had the opportunity to present my research gave me many welcome insights. In particular, I wish to express my appreciation to Susan Donaldson, Ann Goodwyn Jones, John Harley Warner, Bert Wyatt-Brown, and to the anonymous readers for UNC Press. Charles E. Rosenberg offered an especially cogent and timely critique for which I am grateful.

David Thelen’s ideas, provocations, and friendship have been a light of inspiration in my thinking about past and present—and about tomorrow, too. David Nord, a warm friend, has pushed me to see more clearly how to be a his-
