From Malaise to Miracles


The coronavirus pandemic has altered the lives of millions of Americans, and the response to treat and contain the spread of COVID-19 is an unprecedented event for the current generation of Texans. Yet, this is not the first time the state’s inhabitants faced a significant public health crisis. In centuries past, the people of Texas endured several pandemics, epidemics, and outbreaks, and these events can provide insight and perspective into the challenges facing the state today.

With this in mind, TSHA presents its latest eBook, From Malaise to Miracles: Health and Healing in the Lone Star State. The eBook features a selection of new and existing entries from the Handbook of Texas documenting the people, places, and events associated with the medical history of Texas.
