Introducing Dr. Walter Bryant Guy

img

Walter B. Guy (1869-1940) was a physician, inventor, author, researcher, Baha’i, progressive, and is most known to the world as a medical innovator who pioneered the use of Hydrochloric Acid Therapy. He lived in St. Augustine, Florida from 1919 until his death in 1940.

Doctor Guy graduated from Boston University Medical College in Roxbury, Massachusetts in 1899. He practiced in Boston until he moved to St. Augustine with his family in September of 1919. Walter Guy was originally from Henley-On-Thames, England, and immigrated to the United States in 1889. He was a world traveler and made numerous pilgrimages to the Holy Land as part of his spiritual path.

This web site is of interest to a number of audiences. These include researchers in medical history and others interested in Hydrochloric Acid Therapy in the treatment of disease, those interested in black history and the civil rights movement in St. Augustine, Florida, and members of the Baha’i Faith or students of the early history of the Baha’i movement.

The authors of this blog are Laurence Layne and Handly Caraway, who have been researching Dr. Guy since 2002 with the goal of writing his biography. We hope to draw a comprehensive picture of Dr. Guy’s life and contributions as well as look at his times, contemporary social conditions, geographic locations, and his many interests. Much of that material will be published on this site as a single book cannot contain all of the information we have accumulated.
