Scope and Contents

Notes, handwritten in pencil on lined blue paper, for medical lectures at the New Hampshire Medical Institution (later Dartmouth Medical School), from 17 August to 13 September 1854.

Five sections are each headed in ink with the name of the faculty lecturer and the beginning date, either 12 or 17 August 1854: "Dr. E.R. Peaslee" (i.e., Edmund Randolph Peaslee, professor of Anatomy and Physiology) -- "Dr. E. Phelps" (i.e., Edward Elisha Phelps, Chair of Theory and Practice of Medicine and Pathanatomy (Pathological Anatomy)) -- "Dr. Dixi Crosby" (Professor of Surgery, Obstetrics, and Diseases of Women and Children) -- "Dr. Smith" -- "Prof. Hubbard" (i.e., Oliver P. Hubbard, Professor of Chemistry and Pharmacy). Subjects include: development of bone; narcotics, such as opium; emphysema of the lungs; pulmonary apoplexy; pneumonia; anemia; inflammation; phthisis; atrophy; amputation; common boil; ulcers; fractures; oedema; etc. Doodles appear on some pages in the margins. The endpapers contain miscellaneous jotting; the upper paste-down includes multiple repetitions of "E.E. Phelps" and "Edw. E. Phelps" in a florid hand; the lower paste-down includes "Photography" and "Miss Annie Sullivan, Boston, Mass."
