In an almost routine survey of the literature on Podophyllum peltatum, Jonathan L. Hartwell discovered that twenty years before he had identified the chemical agents in podophyllin responsible for the anticancer activity of the resin obtained from the rhizome of the mayapple, it had been reported that the Penobscots of Maine had used this plant to treat cancer. Then, he found that a hundred years earlier, the resin had been recommended as a cancer treatment in the early American materia medica and that it was used by physicians in Mississippi in 1897.
