Notes:
Crawford W. Long administered sulphuric ether on March 30, 1842 and removed a small tumor from a patient's neck. By September he had used ether in 8 operations. His experience with ether was not published until December 1849 as a result of the controversy over W. T. G. Horton's claim to priority in its discovery.
Summary:
Five publications (booklets or pamphlets), one original letter from Dudley W. Buxton to Mrs. Taylor (1911), and positive prints with 17 glass negatives and 1 film negative of a number of letters attesting to Dr. Long's use of ether as an anesthestic. One booklet, bound in blue leather, is a presentation copy to King Edward VII, a biographical sketch of Long by George Foy.
