Authors Stanley M. Aronson, MD, Joseph H. Friedman, MD and editor Mary Korr autographed the initial offering of Medical Odysseys. About the authors

Medical Odysseys offers a lively history of the Society and its spirited Rhode Island physicians who sailed the seas as privateers, worked in the mills, founded hospitals and medical schools, and challenged medical and ethical frontiers. There are also chronicles of capers, crimes and contagions too far-fetched to be fiction. Read an excerpt
