New Luxury Guesthouse Tall Tales Sprouts up at Saybrook Point Inn & Spa

The original plan was for the new, six-room boutique “beach house” in Old Saybrook to be a bit more diminutive than the elegant Three Stories next door. But flood elevations kept rising, necessitating engineering changes that resulted in a taller-than-expected building.

Description

Lecture at Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum Explores ‘Modern’ Medicine of the Victorian Era.

In this age of “Obamacare” and changing medical care, the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum will take a look back at the history of medicine and the medical breakthroughs of the Victorian era in a lecture on September 10th, 2013. “Technology and Invention: Medical Tales of the 19th Century” will be presented by Dr. Gavin X. McLeod, Associate Clinical Professor at Columbia University and attending physician at Greenwich Hospital.  The lecture begins at 11:00am at the Museum, located at 295 West Avenue in Norwalk.  To reserve a seat, please contact the Mansion at 203-838-9799.

            The lecture will touch on the many important medical discoveries of the Victoria era still used today such as the stethoscope and X-rays, as well as the initial studies in the areas of vaccination, germ theory and surgical techniques. In addition, attendees will hear of the medical care of historical figures such as U.S. Presidents and how historical events, such as the Civil War, led to major advances in areas such as medical triage, blood transfusions, anesthesia, and pasteurization. 

Dr. McLeod is currently an infectious diseases physician and Director of Continuing Medical Education at Greenwich Hospital.  He is also an Associate Clinical Professor of Medicine at Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons.  He has consistently been noted as one of the top doctors in Infectious Disease in the Tri-state area including this year’s New York Magazine’s Best Doctors and Connecticut Magazine’s Top Docs.

McLeod has been involved in numerous clinical research studies and written or co-written dozens of peer reviewed articles, case studies and other articles on infectious disease.  He received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Harvard University and attended the University of Connecticut school of Medicine where he received his M.D degree.  He completed his residency and internship in Internal Medicine at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, North Shore University Hospital and Cornell University and received his Infectious Disease Fellowship at Harvard’s Deaconess Hospital. 

            The lecture is part of a series of lectures at the Museum on “Technologies and Discoveries of the Victorian Era.”  The lectures are $25 for members, $30 for non-members.  The price includes lecture, lunch and choice of a mansion or exhibit tour.  Lunch is courtesy of Michael Gilmartin's Outdoor Cookers.  The chair of the Lecture Committee is Mimi Findlay of New Canaan.           

            The Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum’s 2013 cultural and educational programs are made possible by generous funding from the Museum’s Distinguished Benefactors: The Xerox Foundation, Klaff’s, Mrs. Cynthia C. Brown and The Maurice Goodman Foundation

            Also on exhibit at the Museum, “What Is It?  Technologies and Discoveries of the Victorian Era, “ which is open until October 6th.   The “What Is It?” exhibit is made possible in part by a grant from the Connecticut Humanities (CTH), a non-profit affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities that funds, creates and collaborates on hundreds of cultural programs across Connecticut each year.  CTH brings together people of all ages and backgrounds to express, share and explore ideas in thoughtful and productive ways.
