Back Goldfinch looking backwards

I am in the process of bringing my study of Allen v Neustaedter (chiefly focused on the history of the smallpox vaccine)  from another source to these pages where I can take advantage of the many technical tricks of http to make it easier to follow, references and all. See Overview for my work on that to date.

That current source is a large (87.6 MB) pdf file that I prepared a couple of years ago which may be downloaded here. Note to the downloader: while the pdf will open in your browser, you may have difficulty, as I did, to read the many rather extensive pop-up notes in that manner. Better is almost certainly to open it in a pdf program. You very likely have such on your computer, but if you’re having trouble, try this: Adobe Reader.
