This is a specimen of the brain tissue of Charles Guiteau. He is best known as the assassin of President James A. Garfield of the USA.
While James Garfield was shot on July 2, 1881, he did not die until eleven weeks later. Most of his care was considered competent for the day, but his physicians rejected antiseptic technique, and if they hadn’t, it’s widely believed that Garfield would have survived. The exact cause of death was overwhelming infection, leading to rupture of the splenic artery.
His assassin was executed less than a year after his death, by hanging.
