A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Pathologist Collection - A dictionary defines a pathologist as: a doctor specializing in identifying diseases by studying cells and tissues under a microscope. Some recognized pathologists have been celebrated on postage stamps. Louis Pasteur, though technically not a doctor, devoted his life to solving practical problems of industry, agriculture and medicine. A local distiller asked for help in controlling the making of alcohol by fermenting beet sugar, and Pasteur discovered fermentation, putrefaction, infection and souring are all caused by living microbes or germs. Pasteurization revolutionized the dairy industry, food processing, and led to cures for a silk worm disease and the concept of immunization for anthrax and rabies. The basis was laid for the field of pathology and the study of cell changes, with the use of microscopes and new instrumentation. Walter Reed was a 49 year old major in the US Army Medical Corps appointed director of a Commission tasked with finding the cause of alarming casualties in the Spanish American War in Cuba, Yellow Fever. The initial approach, a strictly orthodox bacteriological search for the causative organism, proved ineffective. An interview with a 77 year old Cuban who had spent 20 years on his theory that a certain mosquito transmitted the disease revealed a new direction of investigation. Complete control of the disease followed saving countless lives and enabled the building of the Panama Canal. The Pathologist's skill is identifying dieases by tissue study using microscopes and knowledge of diseases. Pathologists!
