Reminiscences of an American Pioneer in Experimental Medicine; Dr. Wood as a Medical Practitioner by G.E. de Schweinitz; Dr. Wood's bibliographical record.
by WOOD, Horatio C Jr. (1841-1920).
Philadelphia,: 1920., 1920. 8vo. 69,  pp. Frontis. portrait, 2 portrait plates. Grayish-blue gilt-stamped cloth, top edge gilt. Near fine. Wood requested in his will that his reminiscences of his life in medicine were to be published in a special edition of the Transactions of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia. This small volume was the result. A memorial essay by George Edmund De Schweinitz (1858-1938) reflects on Wood as teacher of medicine. Wood served as a field surgeon for the Northern Army during the Civil War, and his reflections on his Civil War experiences are brief but compelling. Wood's son sternly admonished anyone who asked that his father had no middle name, only the initial "C" without a period.
