Horace Greeley admonished the youth of 19th century America to “go west young man, go west,” embodying a turning point in U.S. history. Many went for adventure and fortune, many others for their health. Tuberculosis may have brought hundreds to Tucson in the 1890’s but physicians made the trip much earlier, traveling with the military and developing advances in surgery.

Ken Scoville shares the stories of the doctors, the patients and the hospitals we still know today that began as TB clinics more than 100 years ago.
