William Osler Book Description:

William Osler, who was a brilliant, innovative teacher and a scholar of the natural history of disease, revolutionized the art of practicing medicine at the bedside of his patients. He was idolized by two generations of medical students and practitioners for whom he came to personify the ideal doctor. But much more than a physician, Osler was a fiercely intelligent humanist. In both his writings and his personal life--and through the prism of the tragedy of the Great War--he embodied the art of living. Indeed, this is a book not only about the evolution of modern medicine, the training of doctors, holism in medical thought, and the doctor-patient relationship, but also about humanism, Victorianism, the Great War, and much else. Meticulously researched and accessibly written, William Osler: A Life in Medicine brings to life both a fascinating man and the formative age of twentieth-century medicine. Features * A compelling biography of one of the greatest physicians in the history of medicine

William Osler Book Description:

In his time the most famous physician in the world, Canadian-born William Osler (1849-1919) is still the best-known figure in the history of medicine. This new, definitive biography by Michael Bliss is the first full-scale life of Osler to appear since 1925. An award-winning medical historian, Bliss draws on many untapped sources to recreate Osler's life and medical times for a new generation of readers. Born at Bond Head, north of Toronto, Osler rose from obscurity to become the greatest medical teacher and writer in three countries. At Canada's McGill University, America's Johns Hopkins University, and finally as regius professor at Oxford, Osler was idolized by two generations of medical students and practitioners, for whom he came to personify the ideal doctor. His quest was to bring high standards and scientific methods into general practice in the medical world and to give teaching hospitals a solid place in the education of doctors. The publication of his book, The Principles and Practice of Medicine (1892), established him as the authority of modern medicine, a position he held well into the new century. Osler was revered as the high priest of the advent of twentieth-century medicine. In this fine biography, Michael Bliss animates the epic quality of Osler's life - not only in telling his personal story, but in setting that story against the dramatic backdrop of the coming of modern medicine. Winner of the Jason A. Hannah Medal, awarded by the Royal Society of Canada and the Hannah Institute for the History of Medicine

Walt Whitman and Sir William Osler Book Description:

In 1919, Sir William Osler, M.D., born in Ontario, was the Regius Professor of Medicine at Oxford University and the most famous medical doctor in the world. In that year he wrote his Reminiscences about his personal and professional relationship thirty years earlier with the American poet Walt Whitman. Dr. Osler died before his manuscript could be published. Now, Philip W. Leon presents for the first time the complete text of Osler's Reminiscences, revealing the extent of the doctor's relationship with Whitman. Whitman, Osler, and their mutual friends form a nineteenth-century tapestry, woven from the worlds of literature, medicine, and art, that includes novelists such as Henry James, Edith Wharton, and Owen Wister; medical doctors such as the Canadian mystic Richard M. Bucke, author of Cosmic Consciousness, and S. Weir Mitchell, famous for his "rest cure" prescribed for Whitman, Wharton, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Virginia Woolf, and others; artists Thomas Eakins and John Singer Sargent; and Victorian literati Edmund Gosse, the Brownings, Swinburne, and the Rossettis. The culmination of research among archival sources at McGill, Johns Hopkins, Oxford, and Manchester, Walt Whitman and Sir William Osler presents previously unpublished documents such as Osler's marginal notes in his presentation copy of Leaves of Grass, and Osler's correspondence with members of a fraternal group in England who blended worship of Whitman with homosexual tendencies, radical socialism, and religion.
