"A delightfully told story of the life of Dr. Moorman, of his patients, and of a changing time." Dr. Henry A. Christian, Harvard Medical College, in the Foreword Pioneer Doctor is the story of half a century of medical practice, from the early days in Oklahoma Territory to metropolitan conditions today. Lewis J. Moorman, M.D., once told a patient who apologized for calling him out late at night, "You must remember, I started with a team of Indian ponies twenty miles from a railroad." Moorman's experiences run the gamut of human ills and situations-of childbirth in a barn loft, the "faith healer" who infected a whole community with an "itch," the mother who was sure her child had a case of the "go-backs." He tells of encounters with Indians who needed medical help; the horrifying effects of gunshot and knife wounds; and the spiritual response of patients stricken with tuberculosis. In the literature of medical practice, Dr. Moorman's association with Old Billy, his horse, approaches near-classic proportions. Obtained as payment for a long overdue medical bill, Old Billy had a balky disposition-until the good doctor decided to talk things over with him one day. What follows offers a rare account of the relationship between a man and his horse. Pioneer Doctor stands as an entertaining and informative memoir, but its social and cultural significance is clear. For here is apparent a tremendous transformation as countless young physicians like Moorman went out from Louisville Medical College, covering the plains with horse and buggy doctors. Lewis J. Moorman, M.D. (1875-1954) began practice in Oklahoma Territory as a horse and buggy doctor. A worldwide authority on tuberculosis and former dean of the University of Oklahoma School of Medicine, Moorman is the author of Tuberculosis and Genius.
