The Harvard Medical College professor who was hanged for murder!

(1793-1850) John White Webster was born in Boston to a well connected New England family. He studied medicine at Harvard Medical School graduating in 1815. After commencing a private medical practice in Boston, Webster was unable to make a success of it so he decided to make a career change, and in 1824, he was appointed a lecturer of chemistry at Harvard. Promoted to professor in 1827, he continued to lecture and at the same time he published chemistry books. He was arrested on November 30, 1849, and charged with the murder of Doctor George Parkman, who he owed a great deal of money to. Webster was convicted in March 1850, and hanged in August 1850. The Webster murder case was highly publicized and very noteworthy not only because it involved well known Boston men, but because it was one of the first cases that used forensic evidence to identify a body.

Engraved portrait, 3 1/2 x 4, tipped to a 6 x 9 1/4 album page. Excellent.
