The Cormany diaries : a Northern family in the Civil War( Book )

8 editions published between 1982 and 1997 in English and held by 719 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This unique pair of diaries offers an unforgettable account of the life of an average Northern family coping with the dangers and tensions of the Civil War. There were thousands like them, but few left such a clear and indelible record of their experiences. Rachel Cormany (nee Bowman) met Samuel Cormany at Otterbein University in Ohio. After her husband enlisted in a cavalry unit, she writes poignantly of her anxieties, poverty, and loneliness. Samuel, on the other hand, is ambitious in his military career, and tells enthusiastically about his engagements that include camp life, cavalry raids, army politics, and his battles with alcohol. Editor James C. Mohr has arranged the diaries so that the voices of husband and wife alternate, and his notes enlighten many of the issues relating to the diarists and their daily lives

Doctors and the law : medical jurisprudence in nineteenth-century America by James C Mohr( Book )

9 editions published between 1993 and 2002 in English and held by 562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After the American Revolution, the new republic's most prominent physicians envisioned a society in which doctors, lawyers, and the state would work together to ensure public well-being and a high standard of justice. By the 1830s, medical jurisprudence was being taught as an important subject in the nation's best medical schools, new medical ideas about insanity inspired major legal reforms, and legal issues stimulated medical advances. Medical malpractice suits were so rare as to be curiosities. But as James C. Mohr reveals in Doctors and the Law, by mid-century what had once appeared to be fertile ground for cooperative civic service had become a battlefield, and the relationship between doctors and the legal system became increasingly adversarial
Plague and fire : battling black death and the 1900 burning of Honolulu's Chinatown by James C Mohr( Book )

24 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A little over a century ago, bubonic plague--the same Black Death that decimated medieval Europe--arrived on the shores of Hawaii just as the islands were about to become a U.S. territory. In this narrative, the author tells the story of that fearful visitation and its fiery climax--a vast conflagration that engulfed Honolulu's Chinatown. He tells this gripping tale largely through the eyes of the people caught up in the disaster, from members of the white elite to Chinese doctors, Japanese businessmen, and Hawaiian reporters. At the heart of the narrative are three American physicians--the Honolulu Board of Health--who became virtual dictators when the government granted them absolute control over the armed forces and the treasury. The doctors soon quarantined Chinatown, where the plague was killing one or two people a day and clearly spreading. They resisted intense pressure from the white community to burn down all of Chinatown at once and instead ordered a careful, contro
Licensed to practice : the Supreme Court defines the American medical profession by James C Mohr( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Licensed to Practice begins with an 1891 shooting in Wheeling, West Virginia, that left one doctor dead and another on trial for his life. Formerly close friends, the doctors had fallen out over the issue of medical licensing. Historian James C. Mohr calls the murder 'a sorry personal consequence of the far larger and historically significant battle among West Virginia{u2019}s physicians over the future of their profession.' Through most of the nineteenth century, anyone could call themselves a doctor and could practice medicine on whatever basis they wished. But an 1889 U.S. Supreme Court case, Dent v. West Virginia, effectively transformed medical practice from an unregulated occupation to a legally recognized profession. The political and legal battles that led up to the decision were unusually bitter{u2014}especially among physicians themselves{u2014}and the outcome was far from a foregone conclusion. So-called Regular physicians wanted to impose their own standards on the wide-open medical marketplace in which they and such non-Regulars as Thomsonians, Botanics, Hydropaths, Homeopaths, and Eclectics competed. The Regulars achieved their goal by persuading the state legislature to make it a crime for anyone to practice without a license from the Board of Health, which they controlled. When the high court approved that arrangement{u2014}despite constitutional challenges{u2014}the licensing precedents established in West Virginia became the bedrock on which the modern American medical structure was built. And those precedents would have profound implications. Thus does Dent, a little-known Supreme Court case, influence how Americans receive health care more than a hundred years after the fact"--Unedited summary from book cover
