Description:
Part of the Workers in Tropical Medicine series produced by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, this interview is conducted by Dr. Sodeman's grandsons, who are also in medicine. He describes his entry into the field of tropical medicine in 1932, when he left the University of Michigan for New Orleans to work with Dr. John Musser at Tulane, where much clinical research in tropical disease was taking place. Dr. Sodeman describes seeing cases of amoebic dysentery, Weil's disease, malaria (made worse by heroin users sharing eyedroppers and thus blood), typhoid fever, and all manner of intestinal parasites. Sodeman mentions prominent names in tropical disease with whom he worked (Charles Craig, Ernest Carroll Faust, Charles C. Bass), and his department's role in training physicians headed for the Pacific in World War II. Sodeman also worked at the Carville, Louisiana leprosarium and in Puerto Rico, Venezuela, and Panama at the Gorgas Memorial Institute. Schistosomiasis was an affliction dealt with in most of these locales.
