    Acquisition Information

    In August, 2004, John A. Benjamin, son of the original collector, deposited with the UCLA Biomedical Library an additional small box of letters, photographs, and a scrapbook to be integrated into the main collection of Benjamin papers previously donated to the library.


    Biographical data on Dr. Benjamin can be found in the introductory material to the finding aid for "John A. Benjamin Papers", which is available online.

    Scope and Content

    This addendum consists mostly of personal items and photographs. Some materials pertain to Dr. Benjamin's interest in the history of urology and medicine, but almost nothing is added to the record of his research or clinical work.
    The series-subseries organization of the original large collection has been retained, but only those categories for which there are new materials are listed here.
    The collection is organized into the following series:
    • Series 1. Early Study and Research.. 2 folders
    • Series 2. Research, Teaching, Patient Care -- Urogenital System.. 2 folders
    • Series 3. Research -- Historical and Bibliographic.. 5 folders
    • Series 6. Personal Materials.. 5 folders
    • Series 7. Non-Print Materials.. 7 folders
