Those of you who know about Periodically Anachronistic may think that this is a creation of my mind. But the truth is - you can't make something like this up.

True Medic Stories was a very real magazine, published quarterly in the 1950s and the 1960s.  It's what is inside that is unreal - a world where doctors and nurses lead glamorous lives of working together, dining together and - yes, if you can imagine - socialize after work together. 

They come up on eBay, appear at ephemera shows and sometimes they can be found in antique mall.  Happy hunting, nurse.


  1. well i guess someone will just have to throw together a new and improved edition of true medic stories, won't he?

  2. You just had to lay down the challenge, didn't you...

  3. I'm curious what "Dr. Coke" says about "normal
