X-ray Vision

Record #:
X-rays were first observed in Germany on November 8, 1895, by Conrad Roentgen. On February 27, 1896, the CHARLOTTE OBSERVER published an X-ray photograph of a hand, taken earlier in 1896, by Dr. Henry Louis Smith and three medical students at Davidson College. Dartmouth College was also making X-rays and disputed Davidson's claims to being the first to do it in the United States. Martin discusses the conflicting claims.
