"Theodorus van de Graeff"

Herman Boerhaave set out from Leiden for Harderwijk on 11 July 1693, in order to take his medical degree. He probably travelled by way of Amsterdam, crossing the Zuiderzee to Harderwijk. On 12 July his name was introduced into the 'Album Studiosorum Academiae Gelro-Zutphanicae'. Before he obtained permission to defend his thesis, he was examined on 13 July on the whole of medicine, and on the next day he had to discuss a case of apoplexy and to explain an aphorism of Hippocrates. On 15 July Boerhaave defended a thesis entitled "De Utilitate explorandorum in aegris excrementorum ut signorum", that is 'on the utility of examination of the excreta of patients as signs of disease', under the Praesidium of Theodorus van de Graeff. After graduating in this way Boerhaave returned from Harderwijk to Leiden, probably on the next day.
