Life in Las Vegas

Thomas Scully details his brief employment with Tony Carter in Las Vegas as well as moving his family to the city as well. Scully also describes the volunteer work he did along with a few other physicians at multiple hospitals in Las Vegas primarily for people who could not pay. There were a few medical cases Scully had to deal with such as parabiotic twin syndrome, and a small child being paralyzed due to a tick bite and others. The subject of child abuse was ignored by the medical field until C. Henry Kempe brought it to light with his lectures and work; sexual abuse was also a topic not mentioned in society during this time as Scully recalls.
