If you would like to join this esteemed group of people to vote on future episodes and get access to HistoryPod goodies – as well as help know that you're helping to keep daily episodes like this being researched, recorded and released – you can find details at On 27 March 1915 Mary Mallon, better known as Typhoid Mary, was confined to permanent quarantine on North Brother Island in New York. Mary Mallon was born in 1869 in what is now Northern Ireland and, by 1884, had emigrated to New York where she began working as a domestic servant and cook. Having already worked for a variety of wealthy families, the early 1900s saw a string of outbreaks of typhoid fever in houses where Mallon had worked. This link to the woman that would later be dubbed ‘Typhoid Mary’ was only identified in 1907 after New York City Health Department official George Soper began investigating the outbreaks. One key piece of evidence linking typhoid to Mary Mallon was the sudden appearance of the disease in Long Island’s Oyster Bay the previous year. Local doctors described the disease as ‘unusual’ in the area, but it was later found that New York banker Charles Henry Warren had rented a house there while Mallon was the family cook. 6 of the 11 household members caught typhoid fever in a single week. It was later noted that she didn’t follow basic hygiene practices. Mallon refused to cooperate with Soper’s investigation, even after being linked to typhoid outbreaks in seven of the eight households she had worked for. She was eventually arrested, and tests confirmed she carried the pathogen that caused typhoid fever. Mallon was eventually released from quarantine in 1910 on the promise that she would not endanger the public by working as a cook, but eventually returned to the profession under an assumed name and caused a major outbreak of the disease in 1915. Mallon was swiftly located and arrested. She was quarantined against her will on North Brother Island on 27 March, where she was held until her death from pneumonia 23 years later.


Warren was born in Plymouth, Massachusetts on September 29, 1798, the son of Henry and Mary (Winslow) Warren. He was a descendant of the prominent Warren and Winslow families, and his paternal grandparents were James Warren and Mercy Otis Warren. He attended the local schools and Sandwich Academy. Warren graduated from Harvard University in 1817, studied law with Joshua Thomas in Plymouth and Levi Lincoln, Jr. in Worcester, and was admitted to the bar.

He settled in New Bedford, where he practiced law in partnership with Lemuel Williams, and later with Thomas Dawes Eliot.

Warren married Abby Burr Hedge of Plymouth on December 27, 1825.

From 1832 to 1839 Warren was District Attorney for the five southern counties of Massachusetts. In 1839 he was appointed Judge of the Common Pleas Court, and he served until 1844.

After leaving the bench, Warren moved to Boston and practiced law with Augustus H. Fiske and Benjamin Rand. In 1846 he became President of the Boston and Providence Railroad, a position in which he served until 1867.

In 1851 Warren was elected to the Massachusetts Senate as a Whig, and in 1853 he succeeded Henry Wilson as Senate President.

In 1871 Warren retired and returned to Plymouth. He died in Plymouth on June 29, 1874, and was entombed in the family vault at Burial Hill in Plymouth.
