David Alan Johnson will present his book Diploma Mill: The Rise and Fall of Dr. John Buchanan and the Eclectic Medical College of Pennsylvania and sign copies of the book, which will be available for purchase.

Diploma Mill recounts the true story of America’s largest medical diploma mill which operated from 514 Pine Street in Philadelphia until 1880. Mr. Johnson is the author of multiple works relating the history of medical regulation in the United States. He serves as the Senior Vice President for the Federation of State Medical Boards.

This program is co-sponsored by Friends in the City (FitC) and the Philadelphia City Institute Library. It will be held in the meeting room on the library’s lower level and we regret there is no elevator.
