Description

This unusual album of carte-de-visite photographs was assembled by Dr. Samuel Gregg, the first homeopathic practitioner in Massachusetts. In addition to photographs of Gregg, the album contains portraits of many of the homeopaths of New England, including Conrad Wesselhoeft and I. T. Talbot, along with other figures prominent in the movement, such as Constantine Hering and publisher Otis Clapp.

This picture is of David Thayer, one of the members of the Massachusetts Medical Society who was expelled for practicing homeopathy.
