|The Rev. Henry Whitehead joined John Snow in investigating the 1854 cholera outbreak in London. He published a couple of accounts of the outbreak. He organized and led the investigation by the Vestry of St. James parish church, and their report provided important new evidence and insights into the transmission of cholera by fecally-contaminated drinking-water. See Snow 1854.
