This broadside advertises a handsome $3,000 reward for information on the whereabouts of the missing Boston physician George Parkman. On 30 November 1849, Parkman's remains were found in a furnace in John White Webster's laboratory at Harvard Medical College. After a sensational trial, Webster was convicted of murder and executed.
