I awaken to glory : essays celebrating the sesquicentennial of the discovery of anesthesia by Horace Wells, December 11, 1844-December 11, 1994( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Horace Wells has come to be viewed over the years as an enigmatic figure. Owing to his death by suicide in early 1848, and his inability to participate in the debate that soon erupted over credit for the discovery of anesthesia, the literature on him is confused, fragmentary and incomplete. While he is considered by some to have been the most benevolent and ethically correct participant in the early anesthesia story, an idealist who believed that anesthesia should be "as free as the air we breathe," he has been characterized by others as "volatile," "erratic," "errant," and "wayward."
