(1861 - 1935)



Dr. C. M. Boger graduated from the Philadelphia College of Medicine.

He later studied at the Hahnemann Homoeopathic Medical College in Philadelphia, from which he graduated. During his long career in medical practice and research, Dr. Boger contributed important scientific textbooks, in addition to his authorship of a number of articles for medical journals.

His authorship of several scientific textbooks, his analysis and construction of a Repertory, his lively translation of several medical books from notable German authors and his indefatigable labour for the production of original works, like The Times of the Remedies and Moon Phases and his Provings of Samarskite made him universally recognized as an author and physician of great eminence.

Boger's books include:

Synoptic Key of the Materia Medica
Contains a short repertory and a summary of 323 remedies, complete with region of affinity, modalities, and specific symptoms, all graded as to degree.

Study of Materia Medica and Case Taking
Two essays that display Boger's uncommon knowledge of homeopathic science, that came from deep study and comprehension of its philosophy and materia medica.

Studies in the Philosophy of Healing
More teachings displaying Boger's rare acumen as a successful prescriber.
