Historical Note

In 1909, the Society of Medical History of Chicago was founded in "to secure and preserve matters pertaining to the history of medical institutions, organizations and individuals particularly of Chicago and the adjacent country; and to stimulate interest in medical history in general." Original members of the society's council included George H. Cleveland, Henry T. Byford, Nathan S. Davis, John Edwin Rhodes, George H. Weaver, and Ludvig Hektoen.

In its early development, the society's explicit purpose was the collection and preservation of material documenting the history of medicine in Chicago. These historical collections were built during the early 1910s through early 1920s, and included print and manuscript material, primarily related to medicine in Chicago in the mid- to late-nineteenth century.

Beginning in the mid-1930s, the society shifted the focus of its activities to publishing, public programs and social events. The organization sponsored lectures, meetings and other events, including the annual Morris Fishbein Lecture; it published the Bulletin of the Society of Medical History of Chicago and internal newsletters. Key members of the group during the mid- to late-twentieth century included Ilza Veith, Frederick Stenn, Leo M. Zimmerman, Morris Fishbein, Allen G. Debus, James B. Herrick, William A. Pusey, Arthur F. Abt, H.W. Kienast, Joseph H. Kiefer, Walter L. Necker, George H. Coleman and William K. Beatty. In 2005, the organization was renamed the Society of Medical History and Humanities of Chicago to reflect its broader research interests.

Series II: Historical Collections

This series contains materials that the society compiled for research in the history of medicine. Most of the primary materials in this series date from the 1860s-1890s. While the collections mainly document the history of medicine in Chicago and Cook County, this series also includes material relevant to the medical history of Indiana, New York, Philadelphia, and other regions. The society's correspondence and notes about the provenance and acquisition of collections are sometimes included with the primary materials.

This series is divided into subseries by type of collection or format.

Subseries 1: Organizational Records, is arranged alphabetically by organization. This subseries includes administrative records, course material and publications. Represented are Chicago-area hospitals, universities and colleges, private clubs and societies, businesses and committees. Notable in this subseries are records of Cook County Hospital, Rush Medical College, the Chicago Medical Club, and the Medical Relief Committee, which was organized to support medical professionals following the 1871 Chicago Fire. Oversize material, including important records of the Cook County Hospital and the Chicago Retreat for the Insane, has been transferred to Subseries 6.

Subseries 2: Biographical Files, is arranged alphabetically by name. This subseries consists of material collected by F.D. DuSouchet from 1911-1913, documenting the biographies of doctors active in Chicago in the mid- to late-nineteenth century. Most of the material in this subseries is correspondence between DuSouchet and the family members of individual doctors. Also included are photographs, biographical sketches, memorial material and clippings. General files contain lists of names, unidentified and partially identified material, and unanswered letters. Related papers of DuSouchet are included in Subseries 3. This subseries is also related to the portrait collection developed by DuSouchet, and included in Subseries 5.

Subseries 3: Personal Papers, is also arranged alphabetically. This subseries includes correspondence, manuscripts, personal business records, course material and publications. Most of the individuals represented were physicians or medical students in the Chicago area in the mid- to late-nineteenth century; also included are papers of George Weaver and others involved in the organization of the Society of Medical History of Chicago. Many of the individual collections in this subseries are very small and consist of only a few items. Substantial collections in this subseries include the correspondence of George H. Cleveland; a collection of a variety of personal papers of Edwin R. LeCount; historical research compiled by George C. Weaver; and notes taken by James W. Walker in courses taught by prominent faculty at Chicago Medical College. Oversize

material, including a letterbook of correspondence of Nicholas Senn, and notes taken by Ludvig Hektoen on Senn's lectures, has been transferred to Subseries 6.

Subseries 4: Publications, contains reprints, periodicals, pamphlets and books. Included are works on medical history, medicine, dentistry, temperance, nutrition and public health. Material in this series is arranged alphabetically by title or author; general collections of reprints, periodicals and pamphlets are found at the end of the subseries. An incomplete run of the Bulletin of the Society of Medical History of Chicago is also included. Many of these materials were collected by Nathan S. Davis, who served as president of the American Medical Temperance Association.

Subseries 5: Prints and Photographs, contains primarily black and white photographic prints, with a small number of engravings and reproductions from publications. Included in this subseries are photographs from the collection of Dr. Samuel Slaymaker, taken mainly at Rush Medical College and Cook County Hospital during the 1880s. Also included is a collection of portraits of prominent physicians and other medical professionals, organized alphabetically by subject. Biographical summaries are included with some of the portraits. Oversize material from this subseries, including additional photographs from Slaymaker's collection, have been transferred to Subseries 6.

Subseries 6: Oversize Materials, contains items transferred from previous subseries, as well as a framed print and a pair of Perkins's tractors mounted for display. Significant material in this subseries includes a casebook for the Chicago Home for the Insane; record books documenting autopsies and obstetric cases at Cook County Hospital; notes on lectures of Nicholas Senn taken by Ludvig Hektoen; a letterbook of correspondence with Senn; and photographs from the collection of Samuel Slaymaker.
