about this item

This volume traces the role of Robert Koch in establishing American bacteriology, as American researchers enrolled in his course in Germany since the field of study was absent in early US medical schools. It discusses medical education in the US, Germany, and France before Koch entered the field; his background and education and basic research he would apply in the study of the etiological agents of disease; the state of instruction of bacteriology in the US; the Cartwright Lecture of 1883, in which William Belfield addressed the skepticism of Henry Formad about Koch's identification of the etiological agent of tuberculosis; Koch's pedagogy and approach in training bacteriologists; the experiences of major individuals who instituted programs in the field after studying with him (Lydia Rabinowitsch-Kempner, Theophil Mitchell Prudden, William Henry Welch, Edward Oram Shakespeare, Harold Clarence Ernst, Victor Vaughan, and Frederick Novy); and the impact of the institution of his methods on changes in medical programs that incorporated his work.
