Abstract
The Irish physician's perceptive characterization of an association between cancer of the scrotum in adult male patients and their exposure to soot decades before, while employed as chimney sweeps in childhood and adolescence, solved no pressing clinical problem. The disease was not common then nor is it now (although its setting has changed from the chimneys of 18th century Britain to, for example, the oil-splashed facilities of tool and machine shops). Rather, the clear demonstration that a cause of a well-defined human cancer existed in our environment. and could affect many of those in contact with it was important.
