5:30 p.m.
Shaw Research Library


Science educator and Proprietor Dr. Fred Schubert will give a talk on “Advances in Understanding and Treating Disease in the 19th Century with Lessons That Still Resonate.” In 1800, the world biology had yet to be defined. By 1900, vaccines for many serious illnesses were being developed. The work of John Snow, Louis Pasteur, Joseph Lister, Robert Koch, Max von Pettenkofer and other remarkable figures will be considered.

The talk begins at 5:30 p.m. in the Shaw Research Library on the third floor of the Athenaeum. Reservations are required for this free event. Please call (603) 431-2538 to RSVP.
