|Title:||Paper trails: History of the first Australian paper on ether anaesthesia|
|ANZCA/FPM Author:||Haridas, RP|
|Abstract:||In September 1847, David John Thomas read a paper on etherisation at a monthly meeting of the Port Phillip Medical Association. Thomas' paper is the earliest known presentation of a paper on etherisation in the Australian colonies. Almost half of Thomas' 27-page manuscript was published in October 1847 in the Australian Medical Journal. The original manuscript was acquired at an unknown date by the Medical Society of Victoria. Although a full transcript of the manuscript was published in 1933, the original manuscript of Dr Thomas remained unknown to anaesthesia historians and is now held by the Medical History Museum, University of Melbourne.|
