    Dr. Jesse W. Barnes (1885-1949), practised medicine in Stockton, Calif. (1917-1949). He received his M.D. degree from Cooper Medical College in San Francisco in 1912. Following a brief period in Gustine, Calif. (1912-1916), Barnes located in Stockton where he practiced internal medicine for the remainder of his life.

    Scope and Content

    This collection consists of some correspondence and an unpublished 345 page typescript of a history of medical practice in San Joaquin County (1847-c1947). The history contains photographs and biographies of practitioners and buildings. Barnes apparently compiled and wrote "Doctors" over many years, probably beginning during the 1930s.
