Dr. H.S. Stearns, M.D.

Post by Karen on Sun 29 Aug 2010 - 23:22

Having researched into the Carrie Brown murder, which took place in the East River Hotel on April 24, 1891, I noticed on one of the morgue photos the stamp of the photographer, Mr. H.S. Stearns. What I found interesting is that Dr. Stearns was a gynecologist, so why would a gynecologist need to take photos of Carrie Brown if none of her reproductive organs were missing? Or were they? Could "Jack the Ripper" of London really killed Carrie Brown? Obviously someone thought so, or else she wouldn't have been considered a possible Ripper victim in the first place.

Here is the morgue photo with the stamp of the photographer - Dr. H.S. Stearns, M.D.

Stearns Nearly Drowns

Post by Karen on Mon 30 Aug 2010 - 19:58

Dr. Stearns' Narrow Escape.

Dr. Harry Stearns, of New York City, son of J.N. Stearns, who has a handsome cottage at West Neck, Shelter Island, narrowly escaped death by drowning on Monday morning. Dr. Stearns owes his life to the prompt and efficient efforts of Louis N. Sanford, son of C.L. Sanford, proprietor brick yard at Arshamomoque, and Capt. Decker, of the schooner Josie Crowley, which was being loaded with brick. Dr. Stearns was discovered by Capt. Decker about half a mile off the beach in Poconic Bay, clinging to an overturned boat and shouting wildly for help. His cries attracted Capt. Decker's attention and the latter called to Mr. Sanford, who was near by. The two men put off in Mr. Sanford's catboat, the Nomad. All this time Dr. Stearns' boat was being swiftly carried up the bay by the strong tide and the unfortunate man's strength was slowly giving out. The two rescuers made all possible haste and arrived before Dr. Stearns had relinquished his hold. He was hauled aboard the Nomad and the overturned sharpie was taken into tow and brought to the shore. Dr. Stearns' boat was hauled on the beach and bailed out. Afterwards he was taken to his summer home in the Nomad. Dr. Stearns told his rescuers that about 8 o'clock in the morning he had launched his boat and started for the fishing grounds, at Stearns' Point, which is within sight of his own residence. On arriving there he had thrown over the anchor. The rope attached had caught in the oarlock and the tide, which was running like a mill race, overturned the small boat, precipitating him into the water. With a presence of mind such as is seldom displayed he dove under the boat and swimming down to the anchor unfastened the rope, releasing the boat and allowing it to come to the surface. This gave him something to cling to until help came. The tide was running too strong for him to reach the Shelter Island shore, which was only a short distance away, and he was drifting far out into Peconic Bay when help arrived. - Brooklyn Times.

More On Stearns

Post by Karen on Mon 30 Aug 2010 - 20:04

The following incident occurred just a month before Carrie Brown was murdered on April 24, 1891.

TOWN TALK.

Cabman Charles Holerick, who is employed by Mr. Wash Nailor, was badly injured in an upset yesterday afternoon at the corner of Sixth and C streets southwest. In turning the corner the cab struck a projection, turned over, and fell on top of Holerick and internally injured him. The occupants of the cab, Dr. Stearns, of New York, and a lady, were badly shaken up.

This article appeared in the papers just one month after Carrie Brown was murdered:

A FAVORABLE REPORT.

Made on Koch's Lymph by Leading Physicians of New York.

(SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.)

NEW YORK, May 7. - At a meeting of the New York Academy of Medicine tonight the physicians who have been experimenting with Koch's lymph for some time submitted the results of their investigations. The facts in their reports have already been printed in the newspapers. Dr. Albert L. Loomis presided and about 100 physicians were present. The report of the observations in St. Luke's Hospital was presented by Dr. F.P. Kinnicut; Bellevue Hospital, Dr. Loomis; Mt. Sinai Hospital, Dr. H.N. Helneman; the Adirondac Sanitarium, Dr. E.L. Trudeau, and in connection with the pneumatic cabinet, Dr. C.E. Quimbey, Doctors A. Jacobi, E.C. Wendt, S. Baruch, and H.S. Stearns also made reports. Dr. Wendt said that the results were such as to encourage him to continue the use of the lymph. Dr. Loomis summed up all the reports thus:
"In this lymph we have an agent which can do much good and very great harm. We may conclude that it requires care in its use, as well as more experience with it. I am fully of the opinion that it is going to take a prominent place in the treatment of tuberculosis, and that it is going to save more lives imperiled by that disease than any other agent. Still it may kill more than it saves if we use it recklessly.

Bad Start for Life.

Limping for the rest of his days is the penalty 19 year old Frank Olger must pay for jumping on a moving freight train at Unadilla last Saturday afternoon. His foot was so badly crushed that physicians Stearns and Butler amputated the leg two inches above the ankle.
