Schadle, Jacob E. (1849-1908).

Jacob E. Schadle was of German ances- try and born at Jersey Shore, Pennsyl- vania, June 23, 1849, graduating from JelYerson Medical College in 1881, and practising first in a Friend's settlement at Pennsdale, in central Pennsylvania. After two years he moved to Shenandoah, Pennsylvania, and .six years later came to St. Paul.

It was during his residence in Shenan- doah, and while acting as lazaret physi- cian, that he made a record by the skill and courage which he displayed in the handling of a widespread epidemic of small-pox and stamping out the

In 1885 he rei^orted the successful treatment of three cases of mushroom poisoning by administering large doses of atrojMue. This was the first instance of the use of atropine as an antidote for amanitine poisoning.

Scliadle had, for years, been the leader in his specialty in the Northwest. He was remarkably deft in the manipulation of instruments in the throat and nose, and as an operator he had few superiors, and invented a number of surgical instru- ments which are now in general Schadle was a frecjuent and highly valued contributor to tlie medical journals of this country. His articles include:

" Empyema of the Accessory Sinuses of the Nose."

"Erosions and Ulcerations of the Tri- angular Cartilage of the Septum."

"Adenoid Growths in Children."

" Relation,ship Between Diseases of the Nose and Throat and General"

"History of Medicine."


"Treatment of Syphilitic Cicatricial Adhesions Between the Soft Palate and Posterior Wall of the Pharynx."

"The Relation of Hay-fever to the Antrum of Highmore."

" Membranous Laryngitis, a Compli- cation of Influenza."

"The Relation of Antral Sinusitis to Hay-fever and Asthma."

He had for several years been engaged in the study of the etiology and treat- ment of hay-fever, and had advanced an entirely new theory as to the cause of this disease, which he had hoped to elaborate at the meeting of the American Medical Association. He was an enthusia.stic student of those diseases connected with his special line of work and had done much original work.

He was a member of the Minnesota State Medical Association, the American Rhinological Laryngological and Otolog- ical Association, of which he was president of the Western section in 1888, and was for many years professor of diseases of the throat and nose in the medical depart- ment of the University of Minnesota.
