For you who are history buffs and and understand that much history has been kept from us, the
following excerpts from older books and periodicals are great to reference. These were sent by
VacLib member Sarah in Pennsylvania --thank you! ~Ingri
By the way, these are primarily in reference to smallpox.

phenol: an antiseptic and disinfectant; it is locally and internally escharotic (caustic or corrosive) in
concentrated form and neuorlytic (destruction of nerve tissue, freeing of a nerve from inflammatory
adhesions) in 3% or 4% solutions; syn: phenyl alcohol; phenic or carbolic acid. Stedman's Concise
From A Text Book of Medicine: Symptomatic treatment - the treatment consists in the care of the
eruption to prevent extensive pitting; the treatment of fever and the use of methods and remedies to
make the patient comfortable and relieve the delirium.
The eruption is usually treated by applying gauze immersed in various antiseptic solutions such as
phenol or bichloride of mercury. The face is sometimes covered with gauze, and oiled silk. The
formation of vesicles is sometimes hastened by exposing the patient to sunlight or artificial sunlight.
When the odor is particularly bad, continuous warm baths of antiseptic solutions are used. Scratching
should be prevented as it often causes deep pitting. When the rash occurs in the throat, various
antiseptic gargles are used. It is especially important to keep the eyes clean by frequent irrigations with
normal salt solution or with boric acid solution, to prevent extensive inflammation. The fever is treated
by coal-tar drugs and by cold sponges. The diet is the usual light diet of fever with plenty of water.
When the patient is delirious, morphine or bromides are given. During convalescence oil, glycerin or
antiseptic ointments are applied to soften the crusts.
From the same book we find that the Skin or Local Anthrax was the one that was usually fatal - the
pulmonary was apparently "treatable". Just the opposite of today.
From Morris Beale's book, The Drug Story
Bringing the subject down almost to date, the rawest publicity stunt pulled by public relations firms for
the biologicals manufacturing business was in New York City in Feb. and March of 1947.
On Feb. 25, Eugene LeBar, a Mexico City importer took a bus to New York City. On March 10th he
died in one of the city hospitals. The diagnosis was "hemorrhagic bronchitis". Somewhere between that
date and April 10th, the Rockefeller public relations firm, recently assigned to the American Medical
Association because the upward spiral of drug trust profits wasn't spiraling upward fast enough, had a
Senor LeBar, they reasoned, during his long trip had been in the same atmosphere with thousands of
people from El Paso to New York. Why not drum up a SMALLPOX SCARE all over the United
States and make ten million more dollars filling the nation's blood stream with cow pus and horse filth.
With New York's publicity-loving Mayer, Wm. O'Dwyer, as the spearhead, this is exactly what they
did. The bronchitis diagnosis was changed to one of smallpox 30 days after Senor LeBar's demise.
Mayor O'Dwyer ordered everyone in New York vaccinated, although HE HAD NO MORE POWER
TO DO THIS than Mahatma Gandhi had.
The associated Press put the story on its wires in a big way, its "science" editor going all out to exploit
this latest in "science". Of course, that didn't make AP Director Arthur Hays Sulzberger of the
Rockefeller foundation mad with his editors.
All the dopes and dupes in New York formed long lines in front of every police station and every
doctor's office and had five years lopped off the other end of their lives. Newspapers and health
departments all over the country, following the O'Dwyer publicity spread the serum HOAX and
exhorted their own dupes to "get vaccinated". Thousands upon thousands of them did.
One public relations firm for the drug trust planted a fake story that Pres. Truman had himself
vaccinated before coming to New York to address a newspaper convention. Although this was denied
by the White House, the denial, as usual, never caught up with the lie.
The police station vaccinations cost the taxpayers of New York City $850,000 (remember this is 1947)
and those who went to private doctors, even more. The Drug Trust undoubtedly added ten to fifteen
million dollars to its 1947 profits.

From: The Hygienic System, Dr. Herbert M. Shelton, Orthopathy, Vol. VII, 1941
.....just as before the time of (Dr.) Sydenham, all cases of measles, chickenpox and scarlet fever were
diagnosed as smallpox. Today if a case of chickenpox has no vaccination scar, it is smallpox; if a case
of smallpox has a vaccination scar, it is chickenpox. Few cases now reported as smallpox are ever
sick enough to go to bed. The mortality from VACCINATION is much higher than that from
Smallpox, along with measles, scarlet fever, etc., is commonly referred to in medical works as a
"disease of unknown origin." It is assumed to be due to germs, but the supposed causative germs have
never been found. Epidemics occur chiefly in winter when germs are less active. Protein excess, foul
air and inactivity seem to be its chief causes.
Sydenham, who saw more of the old virulent variola vera than all the now living physicians in this
country together have seen, says: "As it is palpable to all the world how fatal smallpox proves to many
of all ages, so it is clear to me from all the observations that I can possibly make, THAT IF NO
MISCHIEF IS DONE, EITHER BY PHYSICIAN OR NURSE, IT IS THE MOST SAFE AND
SLIGHT OF ALL DISEASES." Under hygienic care recovery is rapid with little or no pitting.
The "disease" is as CONTAGIOUS AS INGROWING TOENAILS, and every case must be
quarantined. Fear of the disease MUST be kept up in the public, for it is only thus that the present
farce can go on.

More from The Drug Story - 1949, Morris Bealle --Smallpox stats
We have some later statistics on the Phillippine Smallpox Front. In the years 1918, 1919 and 1920,
after 20 years of compulsory vaccination, the greatest smallpox epidemic in Phillippine history
occurred, with 162,503 cases and 71,455 deaths.
In the province of Rizal, which surrounds Manila where the representatives of the vaccine companies
had headquarters, they had a death rate of 67.24 per 100. This was three and a half times the death
rate shown in any part of the archipelago before vaccination came to the Phillippines.
Broken down for 1918 the report shows that 3,285,376 Filipinos were vaccinated, 47,369 came down
with smallpox, 16,477 died. In191 9they more than doubled each operation which would seem to prove
this point. The number of vaccinations totalled 7,670,252, the number of cases of smallpox 65,180 and
the number of deaths, 44,408.
To quote Dr. Harry R. Bybee, of Norfolk, Va., pres. of the National Chiropractic Asoc., he said: "My
honest opinion is that vaccination is the cause of more disease and suffering than anything I could
name. I believe that such diseases as cancer, syphillis, cold sores and many other disease conditions
are the direct results of vaccination Yet, in the state of Virginia and many other states, parents are
compelled to submit their children to this procedure while the medical pofession not only receives its
pay for this unwanted service, but makes splendid and profitable patients for the future.
Dr. Herbert Snow, the senior surgeon of the Cancer Hospital in London said: "Of recent years many
men and women in the prime of life have dropped dead suddenly, often after attending a wedding feast
or banquet. I am convinced that some 80% of these deaths are caused by the inoculations or
vaccinations they have undergone. These are well known to cause grave and permanent disease to the
heart. The coroner always hushes it up with "Natural Causes".
Dr. W. B. Clarke of Indianapolis: "Cancer was practically unknown until cowpox vaccination began to
be introduced. I have had to do with at least 200 cases of cancer, and I NEVER SAW A CASE OF
CANCER IN AN UNVACCINATED PERSON"
Dr. J.M. Peebles of San Diego , at the turn of the century, said in his book, "The vaccination practice,
pushed to the front on all occasions by the medical profession and through political connivance made
compulsory by the state, has not only become the chief menace and greatest danger to the health of
the rising generation, but likewise the crowning outrage upon the personal liberty of the American
citizen. The fee-hunting doctors are incessantly hounding the legislatures for more stringent
compulsory enactments by which they will be enable to inflict and repeat this degrading rite upon
defenseless people for the enhancement of their revenues. Compulsory vaccination, poisoning the
crimson currents of the human system with brute-extracted lymph under the strange infatuation that it
would prevent smallpox, was one of the darkest blots that disfigured the last century. The majority of
doctors are behind the times. They may have diplomas, but they are laggards. They are not students.
Many of them prefer the golf course to the postgraduate course, the clubroom to the medical
laboratory, the cigar to the clinic.
More from The Drug Story 1949 -
Dr. Peebles, "It is admitted that prevention is preferable to cure, and there is not an intelligent medical
practitioner in the land who will unqualifiedly risk his reputation upon the statement that vaccination is a
positive prevention of smallpox. Volumes of statistics, as well as the highest medical science in the
U.S., Canada, England the Continent would be directly against. him. The most that any physician of
good standing now contends is that vaccination modifies the disease. This is stoutly denied. On the
contrary it aggravates the disease as there are two poisons now in the system instead of one for nature
to contend against. It is sanitation, diet, pure air, calmness of mind, confidence and cleanliness that
modify the smallpox. Al of these modifiers are infinitely cheaper, safer and in every way preferable to
cowpox poison which, if it does not kill, often marks, maims and sows the seeds of future eczema,
tumors, ulcers, carbuncles, cancer and leprosy.We have at our command testimonies, scores of
testimonies, proving beyond any possible doubt that men unvaccinated have nursed smallpox patients in
hospitals at different times, for years, and never took the disease. On the other hand we have, with
dates and figures, the most positive proof that those who have been vaccinated, vaccinated two and
three times, took the disease when exposed and died therefrom. These facts are undeniable."
A.M. Ross, M.D., seems to have summed up briefly, succinctly and unanswerably (by the vaccine
manufacturers and vendors) the cause of smallpox, which shows that adding fuel to flames will not put
out the fire. Dr. Ross Said: "Wherever the streets are narrow, the lanes and courts filthy, where
cesspits abound and filth is allowed to accumulate and ferment, where the weak, intemperate and
unclean congregate together, and where the children are ill-fed and badly clothed, there smallpox
makes its home and riots in filth and death.
