Biography/History

Thomas Evans (1823-1897) was court dentist to Napoléon III, Emperor of France, and became a celebrated member of the social elite—both aristocratic and belletristic—of fin de siécle Europe. He established confidences with many of the crowned heads of Europe and kept company with such cultural luminaries as Edouard Manet and Stéphane Mallarmé. His star quality, perhaps more so than his professional ability, served to improve considerably the European perception of dental medicine.

Evans was born in West Philadelphia on 23 December 1823 and at an early age developed an interest and proficiency in dentistry, particularly in its mechanical aspects: drawing wires, rolling foil, making instruments. Dentistry was a scantily esteemed calling then, not yet a discrete—or lucrative—medical discipline, but over his ambitious parents' objections Evans entered into apprenticeship with a local dentist. He won what then passed for accreditation in 1843, the same year he married the former Agnes Josephine Doyle, and established a private practice in Lancaster. When an exhibit on tooth-filling won a prize at the Franklin Institute, the young dentist came to the attention of Dr. John Clark, an expatriate who was aiding a dentist colleague in his search for an assistant to his Paris practice. Evans gladly accepted the invitation to join Dr. Cyrus Brewster's bustling office.

Thus Evans relocated to Paris in 1847, where what passed for dentistry was unregulated, permeated with quackery, and still regarded popularly as more a form of street entertainment than as a serious medical field. Beginning in partnership with Doctor Brewster but soon thereafter on his own, Evans developed a formidable clientèle, banging the drum for his profession all the while. His first royal patient was Maximillian II, King of Bavaria, whom he saw in 1850 and from whom he won a decoration. Evans's papers indicate that he treated patients of royal houses ranging across Europe, from Sweden to Greece; those he knew in a professional or personal capacity even included dignitaries from the Far East and Asia Minor (among whose numbers was king Mongkut of Siam, best known from "The King and I" ). The royal clients who above all came to influence his life were the president, then Emperor of France, Napoléon III, whose dentist he became in 1850, and the Empress Eugénie. Evans became their trusted confidant throughout and beyond the years of the Second Empire.

Through his practice and the globetrotting it demanded, the dentist established himself as a sort of informal emissary between various European interests. At the time of the American Civil War Evans took it upon himself to advise Napoléon III against coming out for the Confederacy, where his economic and strategic interests would seem logically to have lain. Despite his intimate contact with Secretary Seward, Consul Bigelow, and other diplomats, this segment of his career is little represented in the collection.

The upheaval created by the ill-conceived Franco-Prussian War, compounded by the capture of Napoléon III and several demoralizing tactical blunders, led to a groundswell of agitated populists, republicans, and assorted opportunists and malcontents, cresting in September 1870. This insurrection provided the backdrop for Evans's most glamorous heroic deed. The Empress Eugénie was compelled to abandon the Tuileries palace, and the country. For this clandestine undertaking she sought the assistance of none other than her court dentist. Using a false passport (contained in the collection) and an unusual route, Evans succeeded in spiriting the Empress out of France by way of carriage, rail, and yacht, passing her off as a patient traveling with her doctor across the Channel. Evans safely ensconced the imperial fugitive at Chislehurst, where she was met by the freshly released Napoléon III in March 1871. This entire affair assured more than ever Evans's high esteem among European royalty, and won him worldwide fame for his daring.

Evans returned to France in later 1871 amid astonishing destruction by the rampaging forces of the Commune, including the gutting of the Tuileries. His humanitarian efforts on behalf of the rank-and-file—such endeavors as the Sanitary Commission, advances in field medicine (including the use of rubber in repairing massive maxillo-facial injuries), the design of lighter ambulances, and the establishment of an American medical corps during the war—sufficiently offset his links to the ousted empire as to insulate him against political reprisals. He still lived with panache, with a flourishing practice and a firm position as a glamorous host to fashionable people of every stripe. In these post-imperial years he established the American Register, published in Paris to chronicle Americans sojourning abroad and to inform them of news from home.

Also during this time Evans carried on an extended affair with a young model and sometime stage actress named Marie Laurent with a not altogether respectable background. The dentist provided her a generous allowance and a villa, and installed her in a lavish apartment which grew to become an artistic salon of remarkable presence. Its habitués included poets Stephane Mallarmé and François Coppée (correspondence from whom can be found in the collection) and artists Edouard Manet and James Whistler (who are not represented here), bringing standouts of belles-lettres into the dentist's social orbit. Evans became a formidable art collector—the University of Pennsylvania formerly owned several of his holdings, including Manets.

In 1879 Evans identified the body of Prince Impérial Louis Napoléon, slain in a misbegotten imperialistic war between Britain and the Zulus, by his dental work. He pridefully (and erroneously) claimed to be the first to thus identify an unrecognizable body. With the Prince Impérial's death the prospects for a Bonaparte imperial dynasty had definitively ended.

Evans published Fall of the French Empire in 1884 in support of the imperial regime. Under the  ordersof Eugénie that such political matters not be disseminated until after her death, Evans destroyed all copies, save one, that rests in Special Collections here. More widely circulated were his  Memoirs, also held here. Evans died in 1897; the obelisk marking his grave towers above Woodlands Cemetery. His will provided for a museum and dental institute at 40th and Spruce in Philadelphia, which joined with the University of Pennsylvania's School of Dentistry in 1912. Eugénie, yet living, was invited to the dedication of the new building in 1913 but unable to attend.
