Group discusses 19th century medical treatments
CLINTON — “Water Cure/Gold Cure,” two popular medical treatments from the 19th century, will be presented at the Clinton Historical Society, 1 Fountain St., at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 11.
The program, presented by Kirkland and Clinton historian Richard Williams, will describe both treatments and where they were located in Clinton at that time. The Water and Gold Cure treatments were just two of many remedies for ills of people in the 1800s when many communities had few doctors and patent medicines were popular.
Williams has been the town and village historian since 2000. He holds degrees from Syracuse University and SUNY at Albany and taught social studies at Whitesboro Senior High School.
Since 1976 he has edited and written six books on local history. His latest book is, “Along Oriskany and Big Creeks: Geology, History and People.” Williams wrote a local history column for the “Clinton Courier” and continues to write a local history column for the “Waterville Times.”
