Book Talk: Rachel Lance, Author of "In the Waves," on Solving the Mystery of a Civil War Submarine

Wed, 2020-04-15 20:00
Wed, Apr 15, 2020
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
On the night of February 17, 1864, the tiny Confederate submarine HL Hunley made its way toward the USS Housatonic outside Charleston harbor. Within a matter of hours, the Union ship's stern was blown open in a spray of wood planks. The explosion sank the ship, killing many of its crew. And the submarine, the first ever to be successful in combat, disappeared without a trace. For 131 years the eight-man crew of the Hunley lay in their watery graves, undiscovered. When finally raised, the narrow metal vessel revealed a puzzling sight. There was no indication the blast had breached the hull, and all eight men were still seated at their stations-frozen in time after more than a century. Why did the sub sink? How did the crew die? Archaeologists and conservationists have been trying to answer those questions for years. Now a Duke biomedical engineer and blast-injury specialist has solved the mystery. Join the Duke University Libraries for a book talk with Rachel Lance, author of "In the Waves." In the new book, Lance brings readers inside her incredible three-year investigation into the mysterious fate of the Hunley, which took her from Duke's Hyperbaric Medicine facility to the archives and museums around the country. Her research has been featured in the latest issue of Smithsonian, Nature, and CNN, among other news outlets. Copies of the book will be available for purchase.

The Frustrated Benevolence of ¿Dr. Anonymous:¿ Unraveling a Myth in the Early History of Angina Pectoris

Thu, 2020-04-02 19:00
Thu, Apr 02, 2020
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Shortly after William Heberden published his clinical description of angina pectoris in 1772, he received a letter from an unnamed man who recognized his own symptoms. Suspecting his sudden death was imminent, Heberden's benevolent correspondent offered his body for postmortem examination to reveal the cause of the disease. Although the letter published was signed simply "Unknown," the mastery of medical terms and astute observations of the author led to his discovery as a contemporary physician, who has come to be known as "Dr. Anonymous." Curiosity, serendipity, bibliomania, and historical research over the past 40 years have led to the discovery of the surprising true identity of "Dr. Anonymous" and to an understanding of the life and times of Heberden's actual correspondent.
