Could I have done more by educating people? Perhaps, but my beliefs determined my actions Will the poor be helped more by communism or capitalism? Will a dictatorship or democracy speed up improvements? The battle to end poverty and inequality continues. © Dr Charles J Margerison - The Amazing People Club 35 Amazing Doctors and Nurses William Harvey 1578 – 1657 I lived through troubled times and saw much blood spilt Most of it was in battles and conflicts Yet, the medical profession liked to see blood flow There was a view that bleeding patients could help them A way to release the bad humours in the body My interest in blood was for a different reason I wanted to see how it flowed around the body and why To my surprise, that had not been recorded by others It was also a surprise that I did such kind of work My early years did not involve medical training Born in Folkestone, I had the salt of the sea in my face I was the eldest of seven children in our family Father was the local mayor and handled legal issues Maybe he expected me to do the same My education in Latin was a good start After leaving school, I studied at Caius College, Cambridge With an Arts degree, it did not look as if I would become a doctor However, that changed when I went to Italy Father supported me with funds ‘This is the start of your real education,’ he said, laughing It was a long journey through France and Germany As a young man looking for adventure, I enjoyed it Albeit, there were many days walking and riding in the wind and rain Finding a good horse for the journey was a blessing Locating a decent place to sleep was a bonus Hearing so many languages and accents was confusing Hoping that my ability to speak Latin would help The Romans had done their best to make it the common language But, apart from the educated class, they had failed It was only when I arrived in Padua that I felt more at home It was a good place to rest and study So, I enrolled at the local university There, I met a man called Hieronymus Fabricius We became friends and he told me about his work © Dr Charles J Margerison - The Amazing People Club 36 Amazing Doctors and Nurses William Harvey © Dr Charles J Margerison - The Amazing People Club 37 Amazing Doctors and Nurses ‘Most of my time is spent teaching anatomy,’ he said He had developed a special room for studying animals The students gathered around to see him dissect the creatures He was a fine surgeon and researcher I learned a lot from him We discussed many issues including how blood flows He thought that the arteries pumped blood around the body Most of all, I learnt about my own interest in medicine That became the focus of my studies Three years later, I graduated with a medical degree What should I do with my new qualification?

Or, was this the answer to the horror of the pox? Later, I again variolated him; again there was no reaction © Dr Charles J Margerison - The Amazing People Club 44 Amazing Doctors and Nurses To be sure, I conducted the same test on 23 other people None of them contracted smallpox It seemed a breakthrough Also, it was possible to inoculate from one person to another It did not require cowpox to be contracted from a cow Naturally, I was pleased and thought other doctors would be also In 1798, I published the results Unbelievably, I found little support It was not as if I was the only one having success Jesty, Sevel, Jensen, Rendall and Plett had used this approach They had experimented, but not gained support either Why was this?

Should I variolate them? ’ I asked ‘Because we have had the cowpox,’ she said with conviction Clearly, she had already done some self-diagnosis Her view was that the rash could not be smallpox as she had immunity ‘People who have had cowpox don’t get smallpox,’ she added ‘I got cowpox from Blossom, one of our herd,’ she said, smiling Should I take the theory of this dairy maid seriously? She had no formal medical knowledge! Was her story an old fairytale, or could it be true? I decided to test the idea There were no proper research facilities But, I had many patients with cowpox I decided to visit Sarah’s village to meet the people While there, Sarah showed me some of her pockmarks Perhaps she could be right Therefore, I took a risk On the 14th May 1796, I tested her theory My gardener was worried about his son contracting smallpox Therefore, I offered to treat him with cowpox and smallpox James Phipps was eight years old He was a brave boy and I inoculated him twice on the same day Cowpox pus was put into cuts on each of his arms The material was transferred on a piece of wood He took mildly ill with a fever, then soon recovered On July 1st, I then variolated him with attenuated smallpox Would he survive, as Sarah Nelmes said he would?
