Bonnie Brice Dorwart, M.D., Lankenau Hospital and The College of Physicians of Philadelphia
Dr. Dorwart's book, Death is in the Breeze: Disease in the American Civil War, was written entirely from primary sources in the Historical Library of The College of Physicians of Philadelphia. Holdings of the College-including lectures heard by Dr. Dorwart's great-grandfather, a member of the Class of 1851 of the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine-provide a unique window into the education of the physicians responsible for the care of soldiers during that war. The book was published in 2009 by the National Museum of Civil War Medicine Press in Frederick, Maryland. Dr. Dorwart practiced rheumatology at The Lankenau Hospital for 27 years. After retiring in 2001 to research and write a book, she volunteered as an attending physician and mentor in Lankenau's Clinical Care Center twice weekly for five years. Still a volunteer, she serves as Archivist of The Lankenau Hospital, as it celebrates its sesquicentennial anniversary, and as Historian of the Walter and Leonore Annenberg Conference Center for Medical Education at Lankenau.

By Bonnie Brice Dorwart, M.D.
Bonnie Brice Dorwart, M.D., cared for patients with rheumatic diseases for 32 years. he began retirement by researching the medical education of physicians who took care of soldiers during the American Civil War. er interest in this topic was piqued by her great-grandfather's service as a Confederate Regimental Surgeon.Primary sources, including lectures heard by him while a medical student 1849 to 1851 at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, revealed what physicians of the period were taught.Thousands of case reports and statistics of illness published by Congress after the War detailed the burden of sickness borne by soldiers. here reports provided a unique perspective on the War, different from the usual coverage of wounds and amputations in medical histories of the era.Death is in the Breeze: Disease in the American Civil War is an outgrowth of that research. Presently Dr. Dorwart is a volunteer servicing as Archivist of The Lankenau Hospital as it celebrates its sesquicentennial anniversary in 2010, and as Historian of the Walter and Leonore Annenberg Conference Center for Medical Education at Lankenau Hospital in Wynnewood, Pennsylvania.
