Description: In the 1820s, Dr. James Barry burst into the English medical establishment, seemingly from nowhere. He landed in Cape Town and became the leading military doctor in the colony, working tirelessly to improve the conditions of free and enslaved Africans, women, lepers, and the indigent. Barry's travels included postings to the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, and Canada. His career collided with those of some of the leading figures of the age, and his exploits were regarded with fascination by Mark Twain and Charles Dickens.

Barry lived as a flamboyant bon vivant, fashionably dressed, flirtatious, and accompanied everywhere by a poodle. Wherever he went, he sparked gossip, enemies, and a relentless curiosity about his identity -- curiosity that erupted into international scandal upon Barry's death.
