The Strange Case of Dr. Couney: How a Mysterious European Showman Saved Thousands of American Babies 

What kind of doctor puts his patients on display? This is the spellbinding tale of a mysterious Coney Island doctor who revolutionized neonatal care more than one hundred years ago and saved some seven thousand babies. Dr. Martin Couney's story is a kaleidoscopic ride through the intersection of ebullient entrepreneurship, enlightened pediatric care, and the wild culture of world's fairs at the beginning of the American Century.

A program of Maimonides Society of Jewish Federation of Reading/Berks.
