A tight and pristine sixth edition of this family genealogy centered around the controversial Maryland physician imprisoned for supposedly conspiring with John Wilkes Booth in Lincoln's assassination. His grandson, Richard Mudd (1901-2002), was likewise a physician, and spent decades attempting to get his grandfather's conviction pardoned but never succeeded.
