A Blind Hog's Acorns
First published in 1945, this book is filled with humorous and touching stories of occupational exposure incidents from the early to middle 1900s. This book is the recounting of a series of detective stories: the never-ending search for occupational diseases. The criminal line-up is a fascinating array - microbes and metals, chlorine and cults, dermatitis and dementia, silica and sensitivity, dust in the air and "dust" in the blood cell, miasmas and myths, poisons and plagues, crotchets and eccentricities. They are all here. The narrative autobiography travels the bizarre gamut of occupations and their effects on health. The incidents are carefully chosen from the rich store in the author's notebooks. A classic of industrial and occupational medicine.
