ANESTHESIA.

MORTON, WILLIAM T.G. 1819-1868. "Comparative Value of Ether and Chloroform." IN: Boston Medical and Surgical Journal (September 11, 1850), pp 109-119.
Removed from a bound volume.

Morton describes the advantages of ether over chloroform in this important review. He begins: "It is now nearly four years since the first demonstration, by myself, that the inhalation of sulphuric ether possessed the remarkable property of annihilating pain during dental and surgical operations, and that this inhalation was attended with no risk to life. The use of this agent may now be fairly considered as an essential preliminary in all operations."

Morton, a Boston dentist, discovered the anesthetic properties of ether. "Morton had invented an improved process for making artificial teeth. This required that his patients submit to the painful process of having the roots of their teeth extracted before Morton's teeth could be fitted. Morton was constantly thinking of the a means of alleviating this pain." See Garrison-Morton-Norman 5652; Keys (1945), 25.
