today i would like to talk about the BIRD MAN OF ALCATRAZ. in 1963, Robert F Stroud, murderer of two men died after spending 54 years in solitary confinement. no man in the history of the world ever spent more time alone. were it not for his deep intelligence and love for birds, Stroud would have converted to a human vegetable, but instead became one of the worlds greatest bird pathologists. in an article in the respected Scientific American, the author states that Stroud learned more about bird diseases than any other amateur investigator. a book THE BIRDMAN OF ALCATREZ and a movie of the same name starring Burt Lncaster, made stroud's genius for curing sick birds world renowned. of course it did not gain freedom for Stroud. one of the men he killed happened to be a prison guard. Strouds book was first published in 1943 and the only major change in the treatment of birds since then has been the introduction of antibiotics such as Terramycin, aureomycin and others in the treatment of bird diseases. antibiotics require a doctors prescription and Strouds treatments do not as they are more of a homeopathic treatment but would require a compounding pharmacist to make them up since some of the ingredients might be hard to obtain today. treating a birds disease is in recognizing what the disease is and what caused it. there is still no other book in the world, in any language which can help laymen more in treating bird diseases than the book Strouds digest on the disease of birds.
