Abstract

• Louis Pasteur's vaccine against rabies, introduced 100 years ago, was greeted by the American medical community with a mixture of praise and skepticism. These sentiments as well as details of Pasteur's landmark discoveries appeared in late-19th-century articles in The Journal of the American Medical Association.
