PHYSICIAN (ANONYMOUS)

PHYSICIAN (ANONYMOUS). [1822] This diarist is most likely James L. Phelps, who kept a journal during the yellow fever epidemic of 1822. He followed forty cases with the name of the patient, age, occupation, address, nationality, symptoms, course of illness, treatment, and other physicians involved, keeping notes on “Pathology & Peculiarities of the Disease.” The diary is in manuscript and owned by the New- York Historical Society.
