Veritas Books: Raphael Cilento A Biography Fedora Gould Fisher

Description

Raphael Cilento - a pioneer in tropical medicine and an early exponent of the concept of public health, Raphael Cilento (1893-1985) was a controversial and charismatic figure. His discoveries in nutrition earned him a knighthood and in 1934 he was appointed Queensland's first Director General of Health and Medical Services. At the end of the war he worked with the United Nations in Europe and in the Middle East, dealing with the formidable scale legacy of concentration camps, epidemic disease, refugees, and repatriation. Following his return to Australia in 1951 he served in an honorary capacity in the preservation of the historical and cultural heritage of Queensland. His wife, Lady Cilento, was for many years the "Medical Mother" columnist for the Courier-Mail.

This is the first biography of Raphael Cilento and shows him to be a key figure in both Australian and international medical history. Fedora Fisher spent many years compiling information from family sources and interviews as well as researching archives in Australia and overseas.
