Historical Note

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.
