John Forrest Dickson, M.D. (1855-1934) had a respected longtime career in Portland, Oregon, as an ophthalmologist, rhinologist,
and oto-laryngologist. He and his wife were valued members of their extended families and held social prominence in the city.
Both, but especially Mrs. Dickson, were active in real estate investments and in ownership of a mine. This collection of circa
340 letters, newspaper clippings, and ephemera document family news and relationships, and include some correspondence from
Dr. Dickson's patients.
