Holmes (Harvard, M.D. 1836) was Parkman Professor of Anatomy at Harvard Medical School from 1847 to 1882, dean of the Medical School from 1847 to 1853, and a noted essayist and poet.

His indictment of physicians for their role in causing and spreading the fever was one of the most controversial treatises of the time.
