A researcher on an academic list to which I belong has asked for some help deciphering the names used for various diseases and aliments in Civil War period medical reports. I'm reluctant to post anything publicly on this but send me a PM if you think you can help and I will pass you the contact information if you think you can help him out.

He can certainly use the resources of the museum if he wants. He (or she) may also come use our research library depending on the depth of need.

Well, I copied you on the message that contained it exactly as I got it. Sometimes you beat the internet, sometimes the internet beats you.

BTW - Here's a few tidbits of possible interest that some other individuals shared with him:

"...go to CATNYP in www.nypl.org. You'll find Joseph Woodward's
Hospital Steward's Manual and Outline of Camp Diseases. There might be
copies near you or they can be ordered as they're reprints."

I believe you are familiar with this website?

And then another website indicated was www.antiquusmorbus.com -

Just in case those are of any assistance.

Robert,
I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for. But, if you are looking for books or manuals . . try "Google Books". They are in "pdf" format. But, you can print as needed or, just save them to your computer drive for reading at your leisure.

You mean not online other than at Google Books?
