Yale Professor of Pathology Dr. Gustave Davis is set to discuss the fascinating — and occasionally gruesome medical history — of the Seward family, and of Auburn, NY, in general in the middle 19th century, on Wednesday, October 23rd.
The program, An Unhealthy History?: Dr. Theodore Dimon and the Rise of Victorian Medicine, will take place from 7 to 8 pm at the Carriage House Theater.

Gustave Davis is a Clinical Professor of Pathology at the Yale University Medical School.
