 CSISS Classics - John Snow: The London Cholera Epidemic of 1854
John Snow (1813-1858) was educated at a private school until, at the age of fourteen, he was apprenticed to a surgeon living at Newcastle-on-Tyne.
Although he was awarded for this work, without the technology and knowledge that we have today, Snow had no way to prove his theory.
It wasn't until 1854, when Cholera struck England once again, that Snow was able to legitimate his argument that Cholera was spread through contaminated food or water.
