SIR ARTHUR NEWSHOLME (1857 - 1943) was a leading British public health expert during the Victorian era. Newsholme strongly advocated improvement of public health by state intervention, such as national health insurance, sanitary measurement, hospitals and sanatoriums for the isolation of persons with contagious disease. Newsholme lived through a time wherein England, and many other countries in the western world, saw a demographic transition characterized by an exponential growth of the population since halfway the nineteenth century, which he explained both by a rise in fertility and mortality since the early nineteenth century, followed by a decline of mortality since halfway the nineteenth century followed by a decline in fertility after 1875. COPY OF ROBERT WORTHINGTON HASTINGS, M.D. (1866-1922), who graduated from Harvard Medical School in 1893, and established a pediatric practice in Brookline, MA. He was on the staff of the Department of Pediatrics at Tufts Medical School, and was author of many articles.
