This, the most famous of those books, was in print until the s. Clendening was a friend o Logan Clendening is one of the more fascinating characters in the history of the Kansas City area.
Clendening was a friend of H. Mencken and Ernest Hemingway, travelled widely collecting rare books and manuscripts related to the history of medicine, and was famous for his blunt and bawdy sense of humor. Besides his writing, teaching, flendening book collection, which later became the Clendening Library at University of Kansas, he is known for two other acts.
He became a regional folk hero in the lates when, after months of dubious construction projects in his neighborhood sanctioned by the crooked machine-led government of Kansas City, he put on his best suit, grabbed an axe, marched to the jackhammer nearest his home, and hacked at it until he was arrested and jailed.
The second act for which is remembered is his dramatic suicide, the result of loban blood loss from a self-inflicted wound to his neck, which clsndening as a shock to readers and many who knew him.
While the science in this book may be outdated, the writing is not. I found it amusing and a useful document in the study of an interesting historical figure.
Someone ought to write a full-length biography of this guy.
