9780865340749: Hovels, Haciendas, and House Calls: The Life of Carl H. Gellenthien, M.D.

Carl H. Gellenthien was a senior medical student at the University of Illinois when he discovered that he had an advanced case of tuberculosis. At that time, the 1920s, the only known treatment was rest and fresh air. The climate of the American Southwest was thought to be one of the best because of the dry air and sunshine. Young Carl, although given only two years to live, went to Valmora, New Mexico where a tuberculosis sanatorium had been established in 1904 by Dr. William T. Brown. He was not only cured but went back to school and completed his medical studies. He then returned to Valmora, married Brown's daughter and later became the medical director of Valmora Sanatorium.

About the Author:

DOROTHY SIMPSON BEIMER, a native of Las Vegas, New Mexico, is a professor emeritus from New Mexico Highlands University in Las Vegas. She is also the author of Audrey of the Mountains, the Story of a Twentieth Century Pioneer Woman, written under the name Dorothy Audrey Simpson, also from Sunstone Press. With a B.A. from New Mexico Highlands University, an M.S. from the University of Utah, and an Ed.D. from the University of New Mexico, Dr. Simpson taught over thirty years and has written many articles for magazines and other publications.

Review:

''In 1924, a young medical student arrived at Valmora Sanatorium in New Mexico having been told that he had less than two years to live. That young man was Carl H. Gellenthien who not only lived beyond that time but is still alive today and is the oldest practicing physician in New Mexico. Gellenthien went back to school and later returned to work at Valmora and eventually became the director of the institution. Doctors were scarce in Northern New Mexico so he found that his duties encompassed much more than running one of the country's best known and most progressive tuberculosis sanatoriums. He soon was serving as doctor for the medical needs of the area. However, his practice was also national as he was called in as consultant in many cases including that of President Eisenhower. Active in regional and national medical societies, Dr. Gellenthien's influence extended far beyond the local practice which despite his growing fame, he never left or neglected. Mrs. Beimer, a professor at New Mexico Highlands University, has done an outstanding job of research and written a book which is both informative and entertaining.'' -- --Marcia Muth, Book Chat, Enchantment
