In addition, the Institute seeks to bring historical perspectives to bear on contemporary health issues. From Wikipedia: Arnold C. Klebs (March 17, 1870-March 6, 1943) was a physician who specialized in the study of tuberculosis. Born in Berne, Switzerland, Arnold Klebs, the son of renowned bacteriologist Edwin Klebs, was raised in the presence of an extensive array of scientists, artists and historians. Klebs took a medical degree from the University of Basel in 1896, then moved to the United States to practice medicine. Klebs worked with William Osler at Johns Hopkins University for a year after arriving in the U.S., and was a contemporary of William H. Welch. Following his work with Osler, he worked as a sanatorium director and tuberculosis specialist in Citronelle, Alabama and Chicago. Given his long experience with the ailment, Klebs was named one of the first directors of the National Tuberculosis Institute. In 1910, he returned to his native Switzerland, and settled in a villa on Lake Geneva. In 1939, Klebs donated his collection of books to Harvey Cushing for its inclusion in what would become the Yale University's Harvey Cushing/John Hay Whitney Medical Library] These included incunabula, plague tracts, herbals, books and pamphlets on tuberculosis, and books on inoculation and vaccination Klebs' library included 3000 texts related to tuberculosis alone. Good. No dust jacket as issued. Cover has some wear and soiling. The Arnold C. Klebs Number, in honor of his 70th birthday. Bookseller Inventory # 65423
