Gib Prettyman HEALTH AND MEDICINE The years 1870–1920 saw profound changes in both cultural perceptions and scientific theories of health and disease as well as in the nature and status of health care practitioners, and these changes were intertwined with larger cultural issues of the time.

Later in his career Cooper moved the Leatherstocking novels to the wilderness, where social-historical detail counted for less and the contest between the retreating natives and the advance guard of white “civilization” more plausibly fit the templates of chivalric romance. But the Leatherstocking romances were not to everybody’s taste. Hawthorne loathed physical violence and explicitly rejected the model of epic conflict that underwrote the “Indian romances” of Cooper and the South Carolinian William Gilmore Simms, author of The Yemassee (1835).

Central to this effort was Samuel Hopkins Adams’s tract The Great American Fraud (1906), which exposed the fraudulent nature of most patent medicines and their manufacturers. This successful campaign represents some of the best elements of Progressive Era journalism and activism, yet it also went hand in hand with the “retreat of private judgment” (Starr, p. 127) that solidified the allopaths’ dominant position in health care, which would only increase throughout the twentieth century. In addition to scientific causes, this shift has also been attributed to the rise of consumer society and a concomitant transformation of economic metaphors.
