New York Tribune, December 12, 1914. Thought I’d bust out a heart-warmer for variety’s sake. I’m surprised to learn that skin grafts were being performed in 1914.
I would have thought that before the availability of antibiotics, skin grafts would have been dangerous because of the risk of infection. That’s a huge risk for a healthy donor to take.
Guy definitely paid his debt to society.
I hope he wasn’t labelled a “skinner” in the joint.
