Most widely held works by Milwaukee Academy of Medicine
Admiral of the ocean sea : a life of Christopher Columbus by Samuel Eliot Morison( Book )

1 edition published in 1942 in English and held by 2,365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A condensation of my two-volume Admiral of the ocean sea, published at the same time.

Otherwise the two editions are identical."--Page xx
Benjamin Rush; revolutionary gadfly by David Freeman Hawke( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 1,078 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume covers 43 years of Benjamin Rush's moderately long, inordinately full life, which ended in 1813, shortly after he had reached 68. Most people, if they know anything about Rush, think of him principally as a physician. He is considered one of the most influential doctors in American history. The medical side of Rush's career is not, however, emphasized in this book, for his fame as a physician rests mainly on work done during the last 25 years of his life. Medicine occupied Rush's mind and time only incidentally during the American Revolution. - Preface

A short history of medicine by Charles Singer( Book )

1 edition published in 1962 in English and held by 745 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the space of this book it was impracticable to deal with all the many facets of the art and science of medicine. I have on the whole tended to treat the scientific aspects more fully because they are generally more difficult to understand, and because brief discussions of their history are rather unrewarding. In the clinical field a few of the specialities are chosen for discussion while others are completely excluded ..."--Excerpted from Preface, "1961, E.A.U." [E. Ashworth Underwood, author.]
