The Greater Philadelphia Law Library Association is pleased to welcome Mark Podvia for a lunchtime Zoom talk on Thursday, June 27, at noon (EST).  Mark will discuss the 1869 murder case Commonwealth of Pennsylvania v. Paul Schoeppe, which involved a wealthy spinster's death; a will leaving her entire estate to her doctor, Paul Schoeppe; and an autopsy revealing traces of prussic acid, a deadly poison.  The case changed how medical evidence was presented and appeals were conducted in criminal cases.

Mark Podvia, a member of the emeritus faculty of the Dickinson School of Law of the Pennsylvania State University, has authored over 75 articles and reviews, and in 2022 he published The Strange Case of Dr. Paul Schoeppe, which details the fascinating events surrounding Maria Steinnecke's death.
