The Sandman Dr. Coppelius, Giclee Print
The Sandman Dr. Coppelius, Giclee Print

The fictional character of the ballet Coppelia, Dr. Coppelius, is a mysterious and faintly diabolical inventor who made a life-size dancing doll that so infatuated the ‘village swain’ Franz, that he threw over his true love Swanhilda.

The inspiration for the ballet is E.T.A. Hoffmann's story The Sandman.

Physician and author A. J. Cronin is noted for his deep social conscience. His novel “The Citadel” questioned occupational hazards of mining and resulted in a free public health service in Britain.

FYI - the film Billy Elliot is inspired in part by Cronin's 1935 novel The Stars Look Down.

Born a free person of color and raised by an aunt who served as a neighborhood care giver, Rebecca Davis Lee became the first female African-American doctor in the United States. Her A Book of Medical Discourses (1883) was one of the first medical books by an African American.

She worked as a nurse from 1852 to 1860, graduating from the New England Female Medical College in 1864. After serving newly freedpersons in Richmond, VA for several years she returned to Boston with her husband, Dr. Arthur Crumpler. There she “practiced from her home on Beacon Hill and dispensed nutritional advice to poor women and children.”

Nicholas Culpeper
b. 10-18-1616; London, England
d. 1-10-1654; London - tuberculosis

Nicholas Culpeper, a physician and botanist whose systematic use of herbals was a key development in the evolution of modern pharmaceuticals, also translated Latin medical and herbal texts into vernacular English.

His halfway house practice in Spitalfields (contraction of 'hospital fields' referring to “The New Hospital of St Mary without Bishopgate” founded in 1197), brought health care to the poor. He also used astrology in his practice, perhaps a precursor to modern psychology.

Nicholas Culpeper quotes ~
• “Three kinds of people mainly disease the people - priests, physicians and lawyers - priests disease matters belonging to their souls, physicians disease matters belonging to their bodies, and lawyers disease matters belonging to their estate.” Thulesius
• “Many a times I find my patients disturbed by trouble of Conscience or Sorrow, and I have to act the Divine before I can be the Physician. In fact our greatest skill lies in the infusion of Hopes, to induce confidence and peace of mind.” Thulesius
• “I have written seventeen books of Physick (besides those already published) which will discover to you the whole method of physick, both according to Paracelsus and Galen's practice.” A Physical Directory, or a Trans. of the London Dispensary, 1649
