Description
This collection contains approximately 870 publications and printed items, produced by various organizations, related to hospitals, medicine, medical education, and public health, chiefly in Southern California in the 20th century. The bulk of the collection consists of meeting programs, annual reports, and directories. The materials were compiled as part of the library of the Los Angeles County Medical Association Collection, a professional institution founded in 1871 and designed to regulate and encourage the development of the medicine in Los Angeles.
Background
The Los Angeles County Medical Association, begun in 1871, is a professional institution designed to regulate and encourage the development of the medicine in Los Angeles. Since then, the organization has established itself as an important institution in the profession. The Association's library quickly became an archive for the medical history of California and an invaluable research resource for physicians.
