Our Tuberculosis Thursday this week is also a teaser for some exciting news we'll share on Monday!
Today's feature is Dr. Edward R. Baldwin, who was a close friend and colleague of Dr. Edward L. Trudeau. Baldwin graduated from Yale Medical School in 1890, and interned at Hartford Hospital. When he developed tuberculosis, he applied for entry to the Trudeau Sanatorium. Trudeau was astonished when Baldwin indicated that he knew that he had tuberculosis because he had discovered the bacillus using his microscope, as the information on how to do so was quite new. Trudeau invited him to work in his laboratory, and Baldwin and Trudeau exchanged the latest French and German medical literature on the disease. Baldwin moved into a house across the street from Trudeau's house and lab, known since as the Baldwin House.
