Subject : Physician memoirs — Addison Porter Dutcher.
Except for one essay titled, "The duty of the physician to the dying," the book is entirely expository writing that has very few medical or case anecdotes. Before he enrolled at the New York College of Physiology and Surgery, Dutcher trained under Dr. Edward H. Dixon, who also believed in the physician's mandate to comment on societal problems beyond the periphery of health care; although Dixon was the cleverer and did not stray so far afield as Dutcher. Most of the 58 essays appeared at one time in the Cleveland Ohio, Evangelical Messenger.
