The collection contains the minute
books of the Los Angeles County Medical Association (LACMA) from 1871 to
The Los Angeles County Medical Association began in 1878, 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.
