Summary: (CIT): 11th Annual James H. Cassedy Memorial Lecture in the History of Medicine: This talk examines the career of Walter Freeman, the world’s foremost exponent of lobotomy. Freeman was also an avid photographer, who almost invariably captured before-and-after images of his patients. The talk explains how Freeman’s apparently eccentric practice fit into the larger picture of science and medicine in the mid-20th century, and how digital humanities methods have helped give context and nuance to Freeman’s work. It concludes with a consideration of what DH methods might offer to historians of medicine in the twenty-first century.
