The author: Silas Weir Mitchell (February 15, 1829 – January 4, 1914) was an American physician, scientist, novelist, and poet. He is considered the father of medical neurology, and he discovered causalgia (complex regional pain syndrome) and erythromelalgia, and pioneered the rest cure. In 1866, he published a short story in the Atlantic Monthly resting upon both somatic and psychological insights entitled The Case of George Dedlow. From that point onward, Mitchell divided his attention between scientific and literary pursuits.
