How midwives became critical in war zones. California’s dark eugenic past. Black New York and the Draft Riots. The many faces of “King George.” Medicine, museums, and unicorns. Irreplaceable Martin Luther pamphlets stolen. Colorado’s infamous tale of cannibalism. Is weight loss advice from the 1920s scientifically valid? Medicine or vacation? Selling addiction treatment in the 20th century. Disneyland’s mystery of the Hat Box Ghost solved? The strange beauty of medical photographs. Death by chamber pot?
