There may be a temporary service outage on our Digital Library (non-newspaper) pages on Wednesday, July 30th while we update the CONTENTdm production server from version 6.5 to version 6.8. This means that the Digital Collections may be temporarily unavailable on July 30th. We plan to have all services restored Thursday, July 31st. Thank you for your patience.
Simmons Lessell, MD elevated the case report to a high art. His descriptions of toxic optic neuropathy, cerebral
achromatopsia, palinopsia, indirect optic nerve trauma, and idiopathic pachymeningitis are examples of the most
luminous prose in the medical literature. His fellows likened him to a “gaon,” a rabbi of exceptional erudition who
was often asked to settle difficult issues.
