Publish And Perish?

In one of those chains of circumstance which cause editors to lie awake late at night gnashing their teeth in frustration, proper credit was omitted from a sidebar in our June, 1977, issue. The sidebar in question was ”… But the patient died,” which accompanied Spencer Klaw’s article on Thomsonian medicine, “Belly-MyGrizzle.” The information in the sidebar was in fact derived from “A Patient Boiled Alive,” by Wesley E. Herwig, an article that appeared in the Fall, 1976, issue of Vermont History . Mr. Herwig, understandably, did his own gnashing of teeth, and we extend our apologies to him and to Vermont History for the oversight.

We hope you enjoy our work.
