About this Item

Boston. Elmer Chickering Photographic Studio. N.D. [1891] 1 pp. 4 1/8" x 6 3/8" Photograph mounted on a card. First Edition. A cabinet photograph of Dr. Conrad Wesselhoeft (18341904), a prominent Boston homeopathic physician of the 19th century. A graduate of Harvard Medical School, he was attracted to Dr. Samuel Hahnemann and his theories of homeopathy. Wesselhoeft was one of the founders of the Boston University School of Medicine, where he became Professor and which was a school of homeopathy well into the 20th century. He dedicated his life to trying to establish a base for homeopathy in modern science. He was the dedicatee of Louisa May Alcott's "Jo's Boys." Wesselhoeft ministered to Alcott's parents, and to the author herself for the headaches and vertigo that plagued her later years. Signed on rear "[Dr.] C. Wesselhoeft 1891."
