Disease, Disasters, and More - Causes Of Death In Early New England. USM Portland Campus

A surprising number of gravestones in Portland's historic Eastern Cemetery reveal an advanced age at death, yet many early settlers died too young.  Richard Kahn M.D, a practicing physician living in Tenant's Harbor, medical historian, lecturer and author will help us understand the state of healing arts and many of the illnesses and hazards that ravaged the 17th and 18th century settlements in what is now Maine. 

Wishcamper Center, Bedford Street, on the USM Portland Campus.
