Memories of Hoosier Family Doctors

An initiative of the Indiana Academy of Family Physicians and the Indiana Academy of Family Physicians Foundation, Family Practice Stories: Memories, Reflections, and Stories of Hoosier Family Doctors of the Mid-Twentieth Century, is a collection of tales told by, and about, Hoosier family doctors practicing in the middle of the twentieth century. 

Edited by Richard Feldman, MD, the stories celebrate that time in America considered by many to be the golden age of generalism in medicine a time that conjures up Norman Rockwell s familiar archetypal images of the country family doctor and a time when the art of healing was at its zenith.

The book is divided into two sections. The first is a collection of reflective essays on various subjects, some written by individuals who participated in interviewing these older doctors, some by invited essayists, and others the perspectives of the doctors themselves concerning medicine and their careers. The second part contains a large collection of stories from Hoosier family physicians that practiced in this era. The stories are specific episodes in their careers and reveal much about how these family doctors touched the lives of their patients and their influence on their communities.

Feldman is a lifelong Hoosier who grew up in South Bend, Indiana. He is a 1972 Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Indiana University, Bloomington, and a 1977 graduate of the IU School of Medicine. After completing one year of psychiatry residency at IU, he finished his postgraduate medical training at Franciscan Saint. Francis Health Family Medicine Residency in 1980. He is a frequent lecturer, locally and nationally, on public health and medically-related subjects. He writes for the Indianapolis Star as an editorial page columnist on health-related issues.

Family Practice Stories costs $24.95 and is available from the IHS's Basile History Market.

So Much for “High Stakes” Testing

The ISTEP+ test scores are in and guess what, despite the crocodile tears of the status quo, students continue to make improvements. As you may have seen, according to the Indiana Department of Education 80.7% of Indiana students in public schools passed the English/Language Arts portion of the test, up from 79.5% in 2013. In […]

Living High on the Hogsett

When I talk to my Democratic friends about now former U.S. Attorney Joe Hogsett running for Mayor of Indianapolis in 2015, you would think they were talking about the second coming and the only thing missing is the donkey and the palm leaves. I don’t blame them, there has to be something frustrating about Greg […]

Good Government & Good Politics

I have always argued that when dealing with crime, more cops doesn’t equal less crime unless you do some other things, like keep the bad guys behind bars and mitigate the conditions that make new ones. The plan Mayor Greg Ballard announced today does just that.  It adds nearly 280 more police officers over the […]

Brilliant or Bastard?

I’ve gotten quite a bit of response to my column this week in the Indianapolis Star on my “reverse panhandling” experiment. You can read it here, but in a nutshell, a few weeks ago I got tired of the panhandlers downtown asking me for money so I decided to turn the tables on them and […]

Mr. Saturday Night

For the past six years I have spent the second Saturday night of Indiana Black Expo working the door as a “bouncer” at Nicky Blaine’s cigar bar on Monument Circle.  I go back and forth between working the door and walking around the immediate downtown vicinity talking to law enforcement and other folks. I was […]

And They Lived Happily Ever After

I didn’t expect to wake up this morning. Why?  Because I thought the world was going to come to an end yesterday.  At least that’s what i was led to believe after listening to the wailing and gnashing of teeth over federal Judge Richard Young’s common sense ruling that Indiana’s ban on same-sex marriage, like […]

Democrat Infrastructure Plan Could Hit Legal Roadblock

Although Indianapolis City-County Council Democrats are touting their “Rebuild Indy” plan as a viable alternative to Mayor Greg Ballard’s infrastructure plan, there could be a legal road block that could stop their proposal from taking effect. As part of their $340 million plan, Council Democrats have proposed taking $45 million from the downtown TIF district. […]

Cockroaches & Congress

What’s the difference between cockroaches and Congress?  One tends to be a disgusting creature that feeds on carrion and carries the plague, the other has an approval rating of just 13  percent. That’s according to the latest Gallup poll.  Which go me to thinking, what else is there that most of us have no use […]

Short on Sympathy

My good friend and Democratic blogger Jon Easter is taking me to task over my attitude regarding Indy’s spike in murders.   On his blog, Easter has levied the charge that I am downplaying the city’s murders because most of the victims (80%) and the suspects (88%) all had mugshots, i.e. prior felonies.   Jon says that […]
