This is a Throwback Therapies: History of Medical Science Series Lecture by Dr. Stephen Berry, Gregory Professor of the Civil War Era and co-founder of the Center for Virtual History at UGA.
The lecture focuses on the increasing role of medical science in establishing precise causes of death in the 19th-century U. S., which in turn created a more precise and robust understanding of public health. The data is drawn from two sources—the South's county coroners' office records, 1800-1900 and the federal Mortality Censuses, which began in 1850 and ended in 1890.
