"Concerning the House Epidemic of Typhoid Fever in Ward E" [Sketch]
Typhoid fever, a common (and sometimes deadly) intestinal disease, was one of Osler's longstanding clinical interests.
This sketch of Ward E at Johns Hopkins Hospital showed where the typhoid patients were located, and noted their possible exposure
to "M," who was probably "patient zero."
Item contains handwritten identifications of the various patients. The patient surnames on this sketch have been redacted
because the Privacy Board of the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutes judged them to be protected health information.
Item is handwritten.
