Digital Collections

About this collection

The History of Medicine Digital Collection consists of letters, diaries, and other manuscript materials related to 19th and early 20th century American medicine. The collection includes materials from Mitchell Memorial Library’s Special Collections, including the Todd A. Herring Collection, the Lenoir Family Plantation Records, and the Daniel Williams Family Papers. These letters and documents offer insight into 19th century medicine, illness, injuries, and views on death, along with more general observations on daily life. Scholars of the 19th century American South will be interested to see details on Civil War battlefield injuries, slave’s lives and deaths, and discussion of the epidemics ravaging the Deep South at the time, cholera and yellow fever.
