About this Item
- Letter from Noguchi Hideyo to Ishiguro Tadanori.
- Presented here is a letter from Noguchi Hideyo (1876-1928), a Japanese physician and bacteriologist who at the time was working at the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research in New York, to Ishiguro Tadanori (1845-1941), previously Army surgeon-general, who came from the same village as Noguchi and built the foundations of the Japanese army medical corps. Noguchi contracted a serious illness in the spring of 1917 and spent the summer of that year convalescing in Shandaken, a village in the Catskill Mountains of southern New York State. He wrote to Ishiguro on paper from the hotel where he was staying. Noguchi later built a villa in the same area. He wrote about the recovery in his health brought about by the change in his surroundings, the trends in medical treatment in the United States, which had entered World War I in April 1917, and development of the Carrel-Dakin method of treating wounds by his colleague from the Rockefeller Institute, surgeon Alexis Carrel, and the British chemist, Henry Drysdale Dakin.
