Occasionally I buy copies of old magazines on eBay in order to get a feel for
what the state of the world was back when it was published. The Saturday Evening
Post has been a good source for that, and I have reprinted a few articles and advertisements
from the era. This particular edition, July 20, 1950, had among other interesting
articles one titled, "The Atom May Save Your Life." It is the beginning of nuclear
medicine for treating cancers and other maladies.
Rather than electronically scanning and running an OCR (optical character recognition)
program on the page, I have just posted the scanned page. You can click on the pages
to get a version large enough to read.
