On Thursday, July 17, 2008 at 6:30 p.m. in the Truman Forum auditorium at Plaza Branch, 4801 Main St., author Pope Brock discusses the exploits of “Dr.” John Brinkley, the infamous “Goat-Gland Wizard” of Milford, Kansas, who made a fortune in the 1920s and 30s with his supposed treatment for male impotence that relied on the surgical insertion of goat testicles. A 6 p.m. reception precedes Brock’s presentation.
