Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
A collection of photographs (positives and negatives) taken during the construction of the Barlow Medical Library building in Los Angeles during 1906-1907 by the architect, Robert D. Farquhar, or his associates.
As a service to the students of the College of Medicine, University of Southern California, of which he was a faculty member, and to the practicing physicians of Los Angeles, Dr. Walter Jarvis Barlow funded the construction of a handsome domed building just across the street from the College to house a medical library open to all members of the medical profession. The building was dedicated in 1907 and deeded by Dr. Barlow to the Los Angeles College Clinical Association (a non-profit holding corporation of the College of Medicine). Control and management of the library collection was vested in the Board of Trustees of the Barlow Medical Library Association.
