Healers and Achievers

Physicians Who Excelled in Other Fields and the Times in Which They Lived


Summary of Healers and Achievers (ID No. 110473) by Raphael S. Bloch, M.D. It is not widely known that throughout history physicians have contributed more than just medical care to civilization. Healers and Achievers is a series of biographies of doctors from ancient Egypt to the twenty-first century who distinguished themselves with lasting non-medical accomplishments. They include the architect of the first Egyptian pyramid, a pope, the "Fathers" of astronomy, geology, magnetism, and taxonomy, American Founding Fathers, French Revolutionaries, a buccaneer, world-class athletes, a spy, and an astronaut. Their life stories are told in the context of the eras in which they lived, and their fields of medical and non-medical expertise are explained in terms comprehensible to both laymen and physicians.
