“The Strange Case of Dr. Couney” conversation with author Dawn Raffel
Seminary Coop Bookstore, Chicago IL
Seminary Coop Bookstore
What kind of doctor puts his patients on display? As Dawn Raffel artfully recounts, Dr. Couney figured out he could use incubators and careful nursing to keep previously doomed infants alive, and at the same time make good money displaying these babies alongside sword swallowers, bearded ladies, and burlesque shows. How this turn-of-the-twentieth-century émigré became the savior to families with premature infants, known then as “weaklings”––while ignoring the scorn of the medical establishment and fighting the climate of eugenics––is one of the most astounding stories of modern medicine. Drawing on historical documents, original reportage, and interviews with surviving patients, acclaimed journalist and magazine editor Dawn Raffel tells the marvelously eccentric story of Couney’s mysterious carnival career, his larger-than-life personality, and his unprecedented success as the savior of tiny babies.
