I teach History of Western Medicine and I am looking for the origin of the red lamp associated with physicians, particularly in Victorian England. Why red and why associated with medicine? Doyle as well as Rinehart have titles of medical stories with "red lamp." Can any one shed some light and if possible with references? It would be greatly appreciated. Sylvie
