Abstract

The author analyzes the practice of James Miles Langstaff, a physician who practised in the town of Richmond Hill, Ont, during the 1800s. As one of the first Ontario-born and Ontario-trained physicians, Dr Langstaff employed the medical innovations provided during a period of exciting change in medicine. Perhaps his greatest contribution was in the preservation of his medical day books and accounts for more than 40 years of practice, parts of which have been published recently.
