Well, there he is, Dr. Jern, standing on a porch in Duluth way back in 1910. Who is Dr. Jern? Is that house still standing? These are the mysteries we hope to unravel.
One clue the internet provides is a brief note in The Journal of the American Medical Association, January – June 1909. In the Medical News section for Minnesota, under the heading “Physicians Exonerated,” appears this item:
“The jury in the Duluth District Court, March 24, decided that Dr. J. Hjalmer Jern, West Duluth, was not guilty of malpractice in his treatment of Hilding Gradine, who sued for $25,000, claiming that Dr. Jern had made an erroneous diagnosis.
