a.k.a. Henry Ebenezer Handerson

Author Code: AHEH

Born: Mar. 21, 1837 - Cuyahoga County, Ohio, USA

Died: Apr. 23, 1918 - Cleveland, Ohio, USA

Educated at Hobart College, New York, Handerson received his degree in 1858. He then worked as a surveyor in Tennessee before moving to Louisiana where he functioned as a tutor for the family of a plantation owner. In 1860, he began studying medicine at the Medical Department of the University of Louisiana (Tulane). At the outbreak of the Civil War, he tutored the family of General G. Mason Graham while also joining a company of homeguards. While his alliance was with the Union, he nevertheless became a Confederate soldier with the 9th Regiment of Louisiana Volunteers, rising to the rank of Major and Adjutant-General. Wounded in battle, he was taken prisoner in 1864 and spent the remainder of the war in various Union prisons. After his release, he returned to his medical studies at Columbia University Medical School and received his M.D. in 1867. He practiced medicine in New York from 1867 to 1885 before moving to Cleveland. Handerson was a fine medical historian and produced some important papers on the subject including The School of Salernum: An Historical Sketch of Mediaeval Medicine (1878). In 1895, he was appointed president of the Cuyahoga County Medical Society. In 1897, he translated and edited Baas' History of Medicine. From 1894 to 1896, he was Professor of Hygiene and Sanitary Science at the University of Wooster and held the same post at the Cleveland College of Physicians and Surgeons from 1896 to 1907. Handerson was a member of the Cleveland Academy of Sciences, the Ohio State Medical Society and the American Medical Association. In 1916, Handerson became totally blind and died of a cerebral hemorrhage two years later. His other works include An Unusual Case of Intussuception (1880), Clinical Hisotry of a Case of Abdominal Cancer (1892), Epidemics of Typhoid Fever in Cleveland (1904), The Medical Code of Hammurabi, King of Babylon (1908) and Gilbert of England and his Compendium Medicine (1916).
