The New York Herald's Very First Report on Dr. Horace Well's Arrest and Suicide—An Original Article Found in New York City Public Library

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The accounts of Dr. Wells' personal life, particularly those of his tempestuous final days, have remained somewhat speculative. On January 24, 1848, a troubled Dr. Wells raced outside of his home and practice on Chambers Street and threw sulfuric acid (vitriol) on two alleged “loose” Broadway girls. We were able to find an original copy of an article published by the New York Herald in the New York City Public Library describing the events of Well's final days.
