In 1794 the exiled chemist Joseph Priestley found asylum in the United States, where science was seen as both an international endeavor that depended upon human rights and a tool that would enhance national development. The arrival of Priestley, the first of many scientific exiles to relocate to the United States, seemed to fulfill Jeremy Belknap’s 1780 description of the United States as “the Mistress of the Sciences, as well as the Asylum of Liberty.” By declaring the United States the best, freest place to practice science, American scientists began to realign scientific internationalism according to U.S. interests and linked the universal ideals of science to the national mission.

Around 1900, hay fever was a contested illness, mostly unknown among physicians or believed to be neurotic in nature. Motivated by a desire to gather and disseminate knowledge about their enigmatic ailment, hay fever sufferers organized to form the Hay Fever Association of Heligoland. The organization’s annual reports combined news from the latest medical science with observations of the illness as experienced by the members of the association. While employing observational practices derived from scientific settings in recording and documenting their suffering, the organized hay fever patients also used subjective experience to challenge the results from professional medical scientists. This struggle between scientific and embodied knowledge sheds new light on the emergence of patient advocacy.
