Ueber die Folgen der Durchschneidung der Tawaraschen Schenkel der Reizleitungssystems.

First experimental study of the electrocardiographic changes in bundle-branch block.

"Later, as professor and director of the internal clinic at the Allgemeines Krankenhaus in Vienna, Eppinger became one of the most notorious of Nazi doctors. In the Dachau concentration camp he and his colleague professor Wilhelm Beigelbock conducted cruel experiments on 90 Gypsy prisoners to test the potability of sea water. The Gypsies became so profoundly dehydrated that they were seen licking the floors after they were mopped just to get a drop of water. Having sea water as their only source of fluid, the Gypsies developed severe physical problems and died within six to twelve days.

"Eppinger was also notorious for his inhuman treatment of patients. On one occasion he brought a patient to the lecture theatre and introduced him to the students with the following words: "Nephritis can be compared with a tragedy in five acts and" – pointing to the patient – "this is the final act of the tragedy." The patient broke down in tears and was obviously distressed throughout the demonstration. (Otto Flemming)" (http://www.whonamedit.com/doctor.cfm/2815.html, accessed 02-2018).

Die experimentelle Chemotherapie der Spirillosen (Syphilis, Rückfallfieber, Hühnerspirillose, Frambösie).

Berlin: Julius Springer, 1910.

After many experiments on the action of synthetic drugs upon spirochetal diseases, Ehrlich and Hata in 1909 discovered Arsphenamine (Salvarsan, "the arsenic that saves", also known as “606”), an effective treatment for syphilis and trypanosomiasis. Arsphenamine was the first modern chemotherapeutic agent.

Manufactured by the German chemical company Hoechst, Salvarsan quickly became the most widely prescribed drug in the world. It was the first blockbuster drug, and remained the most effective drug for syphilis until penicillin became available in the 1940s. Digital facsimile of the German edition from the Internet Archive at this link. English translation, New York, 1912.

Ehrlich's discovery became the subject of the 1940 biographical film entitled Dr. Ehrlich's Magic Bullet. The film was released by Warner Bros., with some controversy over the subject of syphilis in a major studio release.

Peculiar elongated and sickle-shaped red blood corpuscles in a case of severe anemia.

Arch. intern. Med., 6, 517-21, 1910.

Identification of the sickle-cell type of anemia.

Abstract

"This case is reported because of the unusual blood findings, no duplicate of which I have ever seen described. Whether the blood picture represents merely a freakish poikilocytosis or is dependent on some peculiar physical or chemical condition of the blood, or is characteristic of some particular disease, I cannot at present answer. I report some details that may seem non-essential, thinking that if a similar blood condition is found in some other case a comparison of clinical conditions may help in solving the problem."

The control of typhoid in the Army by vaccination.

N. Y. State J. Med., 10, 535-48, 1910.

Russell carried out important and long-continued investigations on anti-typhoid vaccination in the U.S. Army, demonstrating beyond question its value in selected groups. The war of 1914-18 confirmed the value of the work of Wright and Russell.

"In 1908, Surgeon General O'Reilly sent Russell to England to observe the work of Sir Almroth Wright, Professor at the Royal Army Medical College, who had been experimenting with a method of prophylaxis with killed culture of typhoid organisms to immunize against the disease. Upon Russell's return, he submitted a report on Wright's research, which O'Reilly considered "a very valuable treatise on the epidemiology of this disease". He conducted trials at the Army Medical Museum comparing the efficacy of both an orally administered and an injected vaccine. He packed the vaccine in small single dosage using small glass ampoules which, unlike the 1 liter flasks used in the United Kingdom, ensured that all of the typhoid micro-organisms were killed.[1]  (Wikipedia article on Frederick F.

"Malone was a strict adherent to the cytoarchitectonic method, and ascribed similar function to neurons with similar shape in different parts of the nervous system. He named the nucleus reuniens (thalamus) here, and ascribed visceral function to it because similar cells were noted in sympathetic ganglia. He also coined the term paraventricular nucleus (hypothalamus), which had been discovered but not illustrated by Ziehen in 1901. This was the first detailed cytoarchitectonic study of the human hypothalamus" (Larry W. Swanson).

Reprinted in book form, Leipzig, F. Deuticke, 1912. Jung was among the first to support Freud’s views on psychoanalysis, and was considered by Freud to be his most brilliant pupil. Jung applied psychoanalytic theory to the study of myths, developing the idea of the collective unconscious. In 1913 Jung broke away from Freud and founded the school of analytical psychology. English translation by Beatrice M. Hinkle as Psychology of the unconscious: A study of the transformations and symbolisms of the libdio. A Contribution to the history of the evolution of thought. (New York: Moffat, Yard, 1916). In 1952 Jung published a thoroughly revised version of the work, translated into English in 1956 as Symbols of Transformation, and issued as volume five of Jung's Collected Works

The world of life: A manifestation of creative power, directive mind and ultimate purpose.

London: G. Bell & Sons, 1911.

"Wallace's comments on environment grew more strident later in his career. In The World of Life (1913) he wrote:

"These considerations should lead us to look upon all the works of nature, animate or inanimate, as invested with a certain sanctity, to be used by us but not abused, and never to be recklessly destroyed or defaced. To pollute a spring or a river, to exterminate a bird or beast, should be treated as moral offences and as social crimes; ... Yet during the past century, which has seen those great advances in the knowledge of Nature of which we are so proud, there has been no corresponding development of a love or reverence for her works; so that never before has there been such widespread ravage of the earth's surface by destruction of native vegetation and with it of much animal life, and such wholesale defacement of the earth by mineral workings and by pouring into our streams and rivers the refuse of manufactories and of cities; and this has been done by all the greatest nations claiming the first place for civilisation and religion![129] "(Wikipedia article on Alfred Russel Wallace, accessed 02-2017).

Osler 5454. Crellin continues, 'Did Osler see Shaw as just one of many writers (Moliere, for instance, who featured prominently in Osler's library) to create theater by lampooning physicians? Perhaps, but Osler also recognized that Shaw [in The Doctor's Dilemma] touched on some of the same concerns he himself had raised over the years when exhorting medical students and physicians to fulfill the role of a 'good' physician and to maintain an honorable profession. Both Shaw and Osler saw that physicians had the same potential human failings as anyone else, for instance, egoism greed, and jealousy....Shaw, in subtitling The Doctor's Dilemma 'a Tragedy,' focused on ethical issues many of which he linked to the cut and thrust of private medical practice.'

Nostrums and quackery: Articles on the nostrum evil and quackery reprinted from the Journal of the American Medical Association. 3 vols.

Chicago, IL: American Medical Association Press, 19111936.

Cramp was director of the AMA's Propaganda for Reform Department.

"In 1911, Cramp published the first of three volumes called Nostrums and Quackery,[3] which would become "a veritable encyclopedia on the nostrum evil and quackery."[1] The first volume contained the educational materials, case histories, and testimonials his department had been collecting.[5]

"Nostrums and Quackery, Volume II, published in 1921, was a collection of legal reports of case law involving nostrums and patent medicine reprinted from the Journal of the American Medical Association meant to educate the general public. As reviewer Joseph MacQueen stated, "The matter that appears has been prepared and written in no spirit of malice, and with no object except that of laying before the public certain facts, the knowledge of which is essential to a proper concept of community health."[16]

"Cramp's Nostrums and Quackery and Pseudo-Medicine, Volume III, foreword by George H. Simmons, Editor Emeritus of the Journal of the American Medical Association,[8] was published in 1936. As described in The Science News-Letter, the book contained "terse, simple and factual accounts of hundreds of nostrums and the ways of pseudo-medical practitioners."[17] This volume, more condensed than the first two volumes, indexed 1,500 "remedies."[8] W.A. Evans, in his review, wrote "When you have read this book you will consider credulity based on fiction rather drab."[18(Wikipedia article on Arthur J. Cramp, accessed 4-2020)

L'homme fossile de La Chapelle-aux-Saints.

Annales de paléontologie, 6-8, 19111913.

Originally published in four parts in Vols. 6-8 (1911-13) of the Annales de paléontologie. The La Chapelle-aux-Saints skeleton (La Chapelle-aux-Saints 1), discovered in 1908, was the most complete single Neanderthal skeleton found up to that time. The remains, now estimated to date from around 60,000 years BP, were of a male approximately 40 years old at the time of death, who had suffered from advanced arthritis, tooth loss and other ailments associated with old age. The skeleton, together with the stone tools and mammalian fossils found with it, were sent to Boule at the Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle for evaluation. "In November of that year [1908], Boule announced the discovery of what was to become the 'type' skeleton for the Neandertals. In the next years, using La Chapelle as the centerpiece and supplementing this fossil with some bones from other French Neandertals . . . Boule published a magisterial series of works that became exemplars in the scientific community studying human evolution. As a result, La Chapelle became the archetype of the incompletely erect Neandertal slouching his way into evolutionary oblivion. Unfortunately, in his zeal to demonstrate how morphologically removed the Neandertals were from modern humans and how simian-like they were, Boule misrepresented many aspects of the La Chapelle skeleton" (Spencer 1997, 2, p. 266).  Boule's errors of reconstruction were later corrected by Straus and Cave (1957), Dastague and de Lumley (1976) and Trinkaus (1985).

Discovery of the diffraction of X-rays in crystals. Laue’s discovery was of dual importance: it allowed the subsequent investigation of X-radiation by means of wavelength determination, and it provided the means for the Braggs’ structural analysis of crystals, for which they received the Nobel Prize in 1915. X-ray analysis of crystals, as initially developed by Sir Lawrence Bragg, became the most widely used technique for the investigation of molecular structure, leading to incalculable advances in both inorganic and organic chemistry, as well as molecular biology. After Max Perutz and his student John Kendrew first successfully applied Braggs’ X-ray crystallographic techniques to the study of the structure of proteins, these techniques were employed by hundreds of thousands of researchers around the world.

Die Entstehung der Kontinente.

Mitteilung aus Justus Perthes’ geographischer Anstalt, 58, 185-195; 253-256; 305-309, 1912.

Wegener originated the theory of continental drift in this paper on the origin of continents, which he conceived after being struck by the apparent correspondence in the shapes of the coastlines on the west and east sides of the Atlantic, and supported with extensive research on the geological and paleontological correspondences between the two sides. He postulated that 200 million years ago there existed a supercontinent (“Pangaea”), which began to break up during the Mesozoic era due to the cumulative effects of the “Eötvös force,” which drives continents towards the equator, and the tidal attraction of the sun and moon, which drags the earth’s crust westward with respect to its interior. Wegener’s theory attracted little interest until 1919, when he published the second edition of his treatise Die Entstehung der Kontinente und Ozeane.

Later students of the data that Goddard used criticised Goddard for distorting the data to reflect his personal bias. Full text is available from psychclassics.yorku.ca at this link.

An introduction to the history of medicine.

Philadelphia & London: W. B. Saunders, 1913.

One of the best single-volume histories of medicine from the bibliographical point of view, mainly for 19th century and earlier material. A rather compressed work with much detail, this is really more of a reference work than something to read from cover to cover. Garrison had a special gift for distilling the complex lifetime achievements of great physicians into a few paragraphs. In his time he was the leading American authority on the subject and wrote many papers on various aspects of medical history. Those published in Bull. N. Y. Acad. Med., 1925-35 were collected under the title of Contributions to the history of medicine, New York, Hafner, 1966. Garrison saw his so-called Introduction through four editions, the last of which appeared in 1929. That edition was frequently reprinted. See the biography by S.R. Kagan, Boston, 1948.

From this work the younger Bragg derived the “Bragg relation” or Bragg's law (nλ = 2d sin O). This relates the wavelength of the X-ray to the angle at which such a reflection could occur.

The reflection of x-rays by crystals.

Proc. Roy. Soc. 88A (1 July 1913) 428-30 & 889A (22 Sept. 1913) 246-48., 1913.

Discovery of X-ray crystallography. The father and son team of physicists, William Henry Bragg and William Lawrence Bragg, constructed the first X-ray spectrometer using crystals as gratings, using a known wavelength to determine the distances between atomic planes—and thus the structure—of crystalline substances. By the end of 1913 the Braggs reduced the problem of crystal structure analysis to a standard procedure. For further information see the entry at HistoryofInformation.com at this link. The Braggs' paper is available from the Royal Society at this link.

Animal communities in temperate America as illustrated in the Chicago region. A study in animal ecology.

Chicago, IL: University of Chicago Press, 1913.

This book represents the beginning of organized theoretical principles for animal ecology, including Shelford's "law of toleration"  or "law of tolerance." "Analogous to the physiologists' law of the minimum [developed by Liebig], this principle explained limits to the occurrence of a species with whatever physical factor exceeded its tolerance" (DSB Vol. 18, 812).

"In 1895, a young seamstress of his [Warthin's] acquaintance told him about her family's long history of cancer deaths.[6] Intrigued, he researched her family's history, searching death records and administering questionnaires, and found multiple cases of cancer. He followed the family, which he called "family G", for decades, and in 1913 he published their history in the Archives of Internal Medicine.[7][8] His article was one of the first to make the case that cancer was heritable in humans, and the medical pedigree of family G (which was later determined to suffer from hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer or Lynch Syndrome) is one of the longest and most detailed cancer genealogies in the world" (Wikipedia article on Alfred Scott Warthin, accessed 06-2017).

Social work in hospitals: A contribution to progressive medicine.

Cannon, sister of Walter Bradford Cannon, established medical social work as an accepted subspecialty of social work first at Massachusetts General Hospital, and eventually throughout the U.S. Her career was closely associated with the development of medical social work that combined the skills of the nurse, the social worker, the social investigator, and the psychologist. Cannon began training medical social workers at Mass General in 1912. In Social Work in Hospitals (1913), she claimed that the diagnostic casework of the social worker was as important for treatment as was the clinical diagnosis of the doctor.

"Together with L.G. Rowntree and B.B. Turner, Abel devised what they called a "vividiffusion" apparatus, consisting of a series of tubes surrounded by fluid. They first demonstrated the apparatus at the Physiological Congress in Groningen in 1914.[9] By allowing arterial blood to enter at one end of the connection, and later return to circulation through the venous connection after dialysis, they were able to demonstrate the existence of free amino acids in blood. By isolating these amino acids from blood circulation, Abel conducted various subsequent researches on the structure of proteins in the blood. Not only did Abel use the apparatus for his research work, he also realized the great clinical potential such dialysis machine would have on managing the damaging effects of renal failure.[10] The vividiffusion apparatus Abel devised is the precursor to the modern day dialysis machine" (Wikipedia article on John Jacob Abel, accessed 08-2017).

Dandy and the pediatrician Blackfan published two papers on the production, circulation, and absorption of CSF in the brain and on the causes and potential treatments of hydrocephalus. Hydrocephalus is the buildup of CSF within the brain, an often lethal condition if left untreated. They described two forms of hydrocephalus, namely "obstructive" and "communicating," thus establishing a theoretical framework for the rational treatment of this condition.

Study in hospital efficiency as demonstrated by the case report of the second two years of a private hospital.

Boston, MA: Privately Printed, 1915.

Pioneer application of efficiency engineering principles to hospital administration, made over a two year period. Codman was responsible for the “end result idea”. This revolutionary concept, which seems so obvious today, was that a hospital should follow every patient it treats long enough to determine whether or not the treatment was successful. If the treatment was not successful the cause of failure should be determined in order to prevent similar failures in the future. Codman was exceptionally outspoken in his views.

 

Codman reissued and expanded this work in 1918, changing the title to read "as demonstrated by the case report of the first five years of a private hospital."  Neither the 1915 or 1918 editions were dated. "Digital facsimile of the 1918 edition from the Internet Archive at this link.

"This 1915 volume recounts Captain Thomas Whiffen’s travels in Brazil and Colombia in the region between the rivers Issa (or Içá) and Apaporis, and the Putumayo District. The study looks at the way in which the indigenous peoples, especially the Boro and Witoto, relate to their land. He describes their way of life, including their homes, agriculture, food, weaponry, warfare, clothing, health and medicine, songs and dances, magic and religion, tribal organization, the social status of women, and their reaction to strangers. The practice of cannibalism is also addressed and Whiffen suggests some possible reasons for it, including vengeance and supreme insult to enemies, the need to consume all available meat, and the desire to adopt some characteristics of the dead. Appendixes include detailed lists of the Native Americans’ physical features, deities, vocabulary, and names, and an example of tribal poetry" (Publisher).

Sanitation in Panama.

New York & London: D. Appleton and Company, 1915.

"Gorgas capitalized on the momentous work of ... Walter Reed, who had himself built much of his work on insights of a Cuban doctor, Carlos Finlay, to prove the mosquito transmission of yellow fever. He won international fame battling the illness—then the scourge of tropical and sub-tropical climates—first in Florida, later in Havana, Cuba and finally, in 1904, at the Panama Canal.[6]

As chief sanitary officer on the canal project, Gorgas implemented far-reaching sanitary programs including the draining of ponds and swamps, fumigation, mosquito netting, and public water systems. These measures were instrumental in permitting the construction of the Panama Canal, as they significantly prevented illness due to yellow fever and malaria (which had also been shown to be transmitted by mosquitoes in 1898) among the thousands of workers involved in the building project [7]" (Wikipedia article on William C. Gorgas, accessed 03-2017). Digital facsimile from the Internet Archive at this link.

Outline of common skin diseases including eruptive fevers. Also diet plans for children in use in the Department of Pediatrics, the Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Student's Book Store, Baltimore, MD, 1915.

Gilchrist was the first professor to concentrate on dermatology at Johns Hopkins, joining the faculty in 1898. His guide to the common skin diseases, published for the use of medical students at Hopkins, was printed leaving the versos of its printed leaves blank so that students could add their own notes and photographs to the text. Six composite actual black & white photographs of skin diseases were produced, probably around the time of publication, "Illustrating Gilchrist's Outlines of Skin Diseases" so that students could tip them in to their copies. The contents of this book indicate that Gilchrist also devoted some of his attention to pediatrics.

Gilchrist also invented the Gilchrist Bandage, a sling designed to immobilize or fix the shoulder joint or upper arm. Gilchrist never authored a textbook, making this outline or syllabus, that circulated in manuscript from 1900 to 1915, his only publication in book form.

Asaf Judaeus, der aelteste medizinische Schriftsteller in hebaeischer Sprache. By Ludwig Venetianer. 3 vols. (Jahresbericht der Franz-Josef-Landes-Rabbinerschule in Budapest, 38-40).

Budapest: Alkalay, 19151917.

The Sefer Asaf, the earliest known Hebrew work on medicine, is "extant in 16 manuscripts, some complete; it constitutes a source of information on ancient customs and Jewish medical ethics as well as of ancient Jewish remedies and Hebrew, Aramaic, Persian, Latin, and Greek medical terminology. Excerpts from Greek medical books, some of which have been lost and are not known from any other sources, appear in Hebrew in this book. The most complete manuscripts are in Munich, Oxford, Brit. Museum London, Florence, and Paris. The book was not written by Asaph himself, but by his disciples. They mention, as teachers, R. Johanan b. Zavda and R. Judah ha-Yarhoni, as well as Asaph. Some sections of the book are very old, though others were written or translated from other languages as late as the seventh until the tenth century. The antiquity of the work is apparent from its style, similar to that of the older Midrashim, from its use of Persian (rather than Arabic) synonyms, and from the mention of weights current in Palestine during the talmudic period" (Encyclopedia Judaica, 2008)

Saint Apollonia was one of a group of virgin martyrs who suffered in Alexandria, Egypt during a local uprising against the Christians prior to the persecution of Decius. According to church tradition, her torture included having all of her teeth violently pulled out or shattered. For this reason, she is regarded as the patroness of dentistry and of those suffering from toothache or other dental problems.

Ueber eine bisher unerkannte Spirochäteninfektion (Spirochaetosis arthritica).

Dtsch. med. Wschr., 42, 1535-36, 1916.

“Reiter’s syndrome”, a disease of males characterized by initial diarrhea, urethritis, conjunctivitis, and arthritis. Reiter was a German Nazi physician and war criminal who conducted medical experiments at Buchenwald. He wrote a book on "racial hygiene" entitled Deutsches Gold, Gesundes Leben - Frohes Schaffen (1942)

"During World War I, Reiter worked first as a German military physician on the Western Front in France. While there, he cared for several soldiers suffering from Weil's disease, and made his first notable discovery that one of the causative bacteria were Leptospira icterohaemorrhagica, which had eluded culture methods and identification by other scientists ever since that disease had been recognized in 1886.[3] Later, after being transferred to the Balkans, where he served in the 1st Hungarian Army, he reported a German lieutenant with non-gonococcal urethritisarthritis, and uveitis that developed two days after a diarrheal illness and had a protracted course with relapses over several months. The combination of two of the elements, urethritis and arthritis, had been recognized in the 16th century, and the triad had first been reported by Sir Benjamin Collins Brodie, an English surgeon who lived from 1783 to 1862. Separately from Reiter, the triad was also reported in 1916 by Fiessinger and Leroy.[4] Reiter thought he saw a spirochete which he called Treponema forans, related to but distinct from Treponema pallidum, the causative agent of syphilis, and erroneously thought it was the cause, calling the disease Spirochaetosis Arthritica.[5][6] The error probably was influenced by his previous discovery of Leptospira icterohaemorrhagica, and by his work on Treponema pallidum that later enabled others to develop the "Reiter Complement Fixation Test" for syphilis.[2] Nevertheless, the eponym Reiter's syndrome was used for the disease he described, and the syndrome became widely known by that name.[7][8]"

"In 1977, a group of doctors began a campaign to replace the term "Reiter's syndrome" with "reactive arthritis". In addition to Reiter's war crimes, they pointed out that he was not the first to describe the syndrome, nor were his conclusions correct regarding its pathogenesis.[10] Reiter incorrectly concluded that the triad of conjunctivitis, urethritis, and non-gonococcal arthritis was the result of a spirochetal infection and proposed the name "Spirochaetosis arthrosis".[11] The group of doctors was joined by Dr. Ephraim Engleman, one of the authors on the first English-language journal article that used the term "Reiter's syndrome," who was still practicing 65 years later and had been unaware of his Nazi connections at the time he suggested the eponym. The campaign gradually gained momentum, and the term "Reiter's syndrome" has become increasingly anachronistic and has fallen out of favor.[12][13](Wikipedia article on Hans Reiter (physician), accessed 3-2020).

A seminal work of ecological science, establishing a dynamic model of species succession toward an eventual "climax" equilibrium under the influence of climate and other factors in a given habitat. "From his observations of the vegetation of Nebraska and the western United States, Clements developed one of the most influential theories of vegetation development. Vegetation cover does not represent a permanent condition but gradually changes over time. Clements suggested that the development of vegetation can be understood as a sequence of stages resembling the development of an individual organism. After a complete or partial disturbance, vegetation grows back (under ideal conditions) towards a mature "climax state," which describes the vegetation best suited to the local conditions. Though any actual instance of vegetation might follow the ideal sequence towards climax, it can be interpreted in relation to that sequence, as a deviation from it due to non-ideal conditions" (Wikipedia article on Frederick Clements, accessed 12-2016).

Blight: The tragedy of Dublin: An exposition in 3 acts.

Dublin: Talbot Press, 1917.

Gogarty, an Irish poet, author, otolaryngologist, athlete, politician, and well-known conversationalist, served as the inspiration for Buck Mulligan in James Joyce's novel Ulysses.

Blight: The Tragedy of Dublin  
was "one of the earliest Irish "slum dramas", it focuses on the horrific conditions prevalent in Dublin's tenements and the ineffectuality of the medical and charitable institutions set up to combat them. The message of the play reflects Gogarty's belief that only a complete overhaul of the Dublin housing system, coupled with a more effective campaign of preventive medicine, were capable of producing positive change" (Wikipedia article on Blight (play) accessed 5-2020).

Married love. A new contribution to the solution of sex difficulties.

London: A. C. Fifield, 1918.

One of the first books to discuss the differences between male and female sexual desires, and the first book to note that increased sexual desire in women coincides with ovulation and the period right before menstruation. The book argued that marriage should be an equal relationship between partners. In 1935 a survey of American academics said Married Love was one of the 25 most influential books of the previous 50 years, ahead of Relativity by Albert Einstein, Interpretation of Dreams by Sigmund Freud, Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler and The Economic Consequences of the Peace by John Maynard Keynes. Digital facsimile of the 6th edition (1919) from the Internet Archive at this link. The first American edition was retitled Married love, or love in marriage (1918). Its full text is available from the University of Pennsylvania at this link.

The medical report of the Rice Expedition to Brazil.

Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Library, 1918.

The expedition was led by Alexander H. Rice, Jr., an American physician, geographer, geologist and explorer noted for his expeditions to the Amazon Basin.

"As a geographer and explorer Rice specialized in rivers.[1][7] On seven expeditions, beginning in 1907, he explored 500,000 square miles (1,300,000 km2) of the Amazon Basin,[7] mapping a number of previously unmapped rivers in the northwestern area of the Amazon Basin reaching into Colombia and Venezuela.

After his 1915 marriage, his socialite wife accompanied him on several expeditions to South America which were chronicled in the geographic literature and followed closely by the popular press. A 1916 expedition was the subject of a 1918 book by a colleague, William Thomas Councilman.[8] During a 1920 trip, it was reported that "the party warded off an attack by savages and killed two cannibals"[9]‍—‌​"scantily clad ... very ferocious and of large stature".[10] (A subsequent headline read: "Explorer Rice Denies That He Was Eaten By Cannibals".[11] In 1913, the Harvard College Class of 1898 Quindecennial Report had noted that, "An interesting feature of [Rice's] work in South America is frequent reports to the effect that he has been eaten by cannibals or has been a victim of the snakes which are said to be laying in wait for him all the time.")[12]" (Wikipedia article on Alexander H. Rice, Jr., accessed 10-2019).
