About this Item

8vo. 27 pp. C. W. Parsons, M.D.(1823?after 1882), was the son of Usher Parsons, the illustrious naval physician and historian of the Battle of Lake Erie in the War of 1812, a memoir of whom was published by his son, a professor at Brown and an active member of the Rhode Island Historical Society. Parsons begins this essay with a discussion of the geography, the geology and the climate of Rhode Island. He draws inferences about the effect of these factors on the incidence and distribution of various, chiefly infectious, diseases. The influence of population growth and the high rate of immigration on death rates from these diseases is also considered. The very high death rates for several of the diseases was astonishing, epidemic typhus, in one community, resulting in 25% of the local population being lost to this disorder in less than six months.
