Abstract
An examination of the treatments for cholera in nineteenth century Canada. The author includes information on the development of the Quebec medical profession in the early part of the nineteenth century, and the reaction of doctors to the outbreak of cholera in Lower Canada in the 1830s. The disease was brought to the colony from Europe by Irish and other immigrants. Quarantine stations were established to control the spread of cholera, including at Grosse Ile, below Quebec City.
