I wrote SEMMELWEIS two years before our present pandemic. Pleaseed that I did not capitalize on the moment, as if that is a bad thing. But it tells me that Dr. Semmelweis's life & work held up till that time when I was writing it in South Florida and I hope his exemplary life & work that saved many will continue on after this pandemic passes. Thanks to all who contributed. Anthony 

In this time of widespread pestilence I want to send love to my family & friends and to those visiting these pages. I recall my work on the life & work of Ignaz Semmelweis, informaiton about whom is contained in these pages.  He never gave up, working against great odds and in the process, at the expense of his own life, saved countless lives of pregnant women, new mothers and their offspring.

 

 

Also, for your entertainment, I hope, here are linkis to radio shows on which I appeared over the past few years.

SWITCHING!

Semmelwies arrives in Vienna to study law. He audits a demonstration by the famous physician Joseph Skoda. Without telling his father he switches from law to medicine. Switching in this project the recently completed book Semmelweis, the Women's Doctor is thematic. Switching from his small town in Buda to big-town comparatively intolerant, racist Vienna. Switching studies. And then the first major step in discovering the causes of childbed fever, the H.I. V. and cancer of his time, switching midwives of the Second lying-in clinic with the medical students of the First. The death reate was higher in the First. Semmelweis wa sout to discver why.
