Dr Christine Ball is an anaesthetist at the Alfred Hospital in Melbourne and co-manages a Master of Medicine (Perioperative) at Monash University. She is the 2020–2024 Wood Library-Museum Laureate of the History of Anesthesiology. She has been an honorary curator at the Geoffrey Kaye Museum of Anaesthetic History for thirty years.
Today we discuss her 2021 book "The Chloroformist", a fascinating read about the history of anaesthesia and detailed biographies of its pioneers including Dr Joseph Clover. Her book is available at all bookstores including Melbourne University Press.
