This month’s special presentation is on the State of Medical Treatments in Tippecanoe County in 1915. If you had constipation in 1915, you could easily have been treated with strychnine as the treatment of choice. Cough? Bayer’s Heroin. Other aches? Cocaine. Hear and see examples of actual prescriptions written by A.C. Arnett, R. B. Wetherill and other physicians in Tippecanoe County. This month’s guest presenter is Dr. Pete Bill.
