Alice Hamilton A LIFE IN LETTERS


Alice Hamilton A LIFE IN LETTERS by Barbara Sicherman

Biography of a pioneer in industrial toxicology in the US, covering her lifes work from the early 1920's to the Vietnam War.


The book is a pleasure to read, no doubt in part because it conveys the lively intelligences of both Hamilton and Sicherman in an engaging and graceful duet. -- Martha Minow, Reviews in American History An admirable book about an admirable subject... I cannot remember the last time I read a 'scholarly biography
with greater pleasure.

-- Charles E. Rosenberg, Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography
