Default Journal Article 1888 The Medical Standard

J G Kiernan, "Sexual Perversion and the Whitechapel Murders", The Medical Standard, Vol IV, no 5, Nov 1888

Journal article published November 1888 , a very timely article, that would provide an interesting view of the medical profession toward the Whitechapel Murderer

The article would also throw light on the mindset of the police and medical practitioners at that time who may have been informed by the author's professional opinions expressed in this journal.

Dr. E. C. Spitzka already had played a role (in 1881) in another big murder case trial. He was called for the defense as their expert on insanity in the U.S. v. Charles Guiteau, on trial for killing President Garfield. He was ignored, though most now believe Guiteau was insane. Check out Charles Rosenberg's "The Trial of the Assassin Guiteau" published in 1968.

And might I throw Henry Wellcome into the hodge podge of suspects at this time. A very silly theory on pure supposition I know but he was an enthusiastic Egyptologist with a particular interest in Anubine mummification techniques. And he was out of London during October 1888.

He did marry the daughter of another suspect and was known to give out free tablets (cachous)

And here is his business partner.....
