A textbook authored at the University of Kansas by surgeon Arthur Hertzler, M.D., The Technic of Local Anesthesia was published in its 6th edition by 1937 (left and center). During the month before transferring the Chandeleur (upper right) from San Francisco’s Western Pipe and Steel Company to the United States Navy, the seaplane tender received this copy of Hertzler’s book for its Medical Department (lower right). Ferrying aviators, shipping cargo, and tendering seaplanes, the USS Chandeleur and this “local” book witnessed military action in the waters of the South Pacific and off the shores of the Philippines and Japan during World War II. Mothballed by 1947 in the Navy’s Philadelphia reserve, the Chandeleur was scrapped in 1971. Fortunately, this book, this tiny piece of the USS Chandeleur, was recovered (not re-covered) recently for the Wood Library-Museum’s military anesthesia collection.
