Program Title LIFE AND DEATH (MOSTLY DEATH) IN NEW MEXICO 100 YEARS AGO
 
Program Description Indians and barroom shootouts the Hollywood clich├ęs of pioneer life, were far less a threat than domestic accidents and the humdrum medical problems associated with limited access to modern health care. On the other hand, there was a much-reduced threat of communicable disease. Systematically and entertainingly, such is the intention as this lecture compares mortality in the rough circumstances of pioneer New Mexico with that of the more well-established and stable parts of the country - with surprising results.
