About This Item


Full Description

Originally published in 1945, this delightful book offers historical vignettes on the maladies of workers. Recalling his diagnosis of a wide variety of occupational conditions and illnesses, Dr. McCord covers 25 years of industrial hygiene, in locals from Canada to Panama.

From blindness due to benzol to sickness from silica grindstone dust in factories to a woman who was making herself sick so she could be pampered in the hospital, McCord recounts his experiences as a doctor as it related to worker health and safety.
