written by Dr. Elliot Joslin, who was a diabetes specialist before insulin

Sybil - do you happen to know where Joslin practiced?  Keene State College
in NH has a Joslin Hall which used to house their nursing program and
patient rooms early in the 1900's, headed by a Dr. Joslin - haven't been
able to discover if it's the same guy or not.  On my "to do" list for "one
of these days" lol

Thanks for any info!
The book is the Diabetic Manual it is gray and I have one of the early 
editions. I think its in my cellar with some old books. The edition I have was 
printed in 57 I believe. 
Elliot Joslin had a clinic in Kenmore Square near Fenway Park. He lived in 
 the clinic it was a 4 or 5 floor row house. I was there in 1947 and in the
50's he whacked me on the back of my head in the waiting room. He had a 
 curved spine with stooped shoulders. He hit me and told me to sit up or you
look like me someday. I have an exam paper with my dx date of 12/1/1947. I did 
not stay in the hospital that day, because my brother 12 years older with 
diabetes made my Mother know how to handle a new diabetic. Roger C
