Dr. Louis Alexander Dugas, M.D., LL.D. (1806-1884), held the chair of surgery at the Medical College of Augusta (the present University of Georgia School of Medicine) from 1855 to 1882, was dean for a period of twenty years and editor of the Southern Medical and Surgical Journal from 1851 to 1858. Eponymously he is remembered for his famous sign indicative of dislocation of the shoulder joint. During his professional career he published approximately one hundred articles which are a credit to his surgical versatility and the wide range of his medical knowledge. The paper which follows is one of several Dugas manuscripts which have recently come to light.
