In 1880, Tombstone was a town of 2,000 citizens with a dozen doctors, but only four of them had a license to practice. The word “practice” took on new meaning on the frontier as these doctors performed procedures without the restrictions and restraints required of their Eastern colleagues. Arizona’s Official Historian Marshall Trimble takes a look at some of the curious and crazy approaches to frontier medicine, proving that laughter is the best medicine.
