A popular western medicine textbook is dead, but that doesn’t mean its legacy is going to be forgotten.
Instead, it may serve as a kind of reminder to readers that even though the field has gone through many waves of innovation, the most important thing to remember is that it was founded in the 19th century, not the 20th.
In this case, the book’s founder, Thomas Jefferson, was not a doctor, but a natural philosopher, a natural scientist, and a champion of science and rationality.
If we’re honest, we’re pretty sure that’s why it’s now out of print.
The author’s name, Thomas Sowell, is not the name of his father, the famous US historian and political philosopher, nor is it the name he’s most often associated with, Thomas J. Sowell.
His real name is Thomas W. Sowers.
He was born in 1860 and lived to see the publication of a version of his work in a British textbook, in 1861.
Sows books were very popular, as they were the standard textbook for American teachers.
In 1873, the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) published a version for its membership of more than 500,000 people.
The American Association of Medicine (AAM) later published its own edition in 1874.
Sowels work has become a central part of the history of the American medical profession, and today, it’s considered by many to be one of the first modern texts of Western medicine.
But its legacy may not be nearly as important as its reputation, especially when it comes to teaching a class in which American doctors were often considered a minority.
Today, the name “Thomas Sowell” does not appear in the AAM or AAAS books.
Instead it’s spelled with the name Thomas Jefferson.
Thomas Sowers was born on March 23, 1819, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the son of John and Emily Sowell of Philadelphia.
John Sowell had a wife, Anna, and their two children, William and Mary, were born in 1823.
John was an English-born merchant, and Emily was a German-born lawyer.
John and Anna divorced in 1845 and lived in Pennsylvania until they married in 1851.
John lived in a mansion in the country, while Emily, who was more than willing to travel to Europe to marry someone of her choice, lived in the same house.
The family traveled from town to town in Pennsylvania, and they had four children: William, Mary, Thomas, and Benjamin.
Emily and John had seven grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren, including a son, Thomas Jr., who died at age 40 in 1887.
In the summer of 1846, John and Sarah Sowell settled in New York City.
John married Martha, who died of tuberculosis in 1857.
John moved to New Jersey and Martha, then aged 31, moved to Pennsylvania, where she was a nurse.
Thomas Sr. died in the winter of 1847.
Sarah married William and had two children.
William married Elizabeth and had a son named Charles.
William had a daughter named Mary, who lived in Virginia.
William and Elizabeth had three children, James, George, and Sarah.
William, Sarah, and Elizabeth, then ages 32 and 34, were married in Pennsylvania and settled in Delaware.
They had two daughters: Margaret and Margaret (Mary) and three sons: Charles, William, and William Jr. The Sows were very close.
Their son-in-law, John M. Jefferson, served as governor of Pennsylvania from 1842 to 1846 and served in the US Senate from 1848 to 1851, when he was elected to the US House of Representatives.
Jefferson was a member of the House of Representative, as well as the Senate and the Senate Banking Committee.
He also served as a member and vice president of the National Bank of the United States.
In addition to the Sows, John Sowers married several women.
Mary Ann, who had three daughters, was married to William Pemberton in 1846.
The same year, the Sowers also had two other children, Benjamin and Joseph.
Joseph married Sally Ann, a member, and had three sons, George Jr., and Robert.
Sally died in 1852.
Thomas Jr. married his third wife, Frances, in 1859.
Frances died of an accidental heart attack in 1879.
Frances’ daughter, Frances Ann, died of pneumonia in 1900.
Frances and Thomas were widowed, and Thomas died in 1902.
Thomas and Mary lived together until she died in 1904.
They remarried in 1915 and had one daughter, Alice.
Thomas married Mary Ann’s widow, Virginia, in 1918.
The couple had one son, Robert, and three daughters: Clara, Frances and Anna.
The Thomas and Frances Sows had five children: Mary, Robert Jr., Frances, Alice, and Joseph Jr.
