Albert A. Marrett won the prize for the best notes on the Clinical Medicine lectures of Dr. Lunsford P. Yandell Jr for 1873-74. His notebook appears to be an almost verbatim transcript of the lectures, and occupies 679 pages, including the helpful index. In each lecture Dr. Yandell describes a number of cases, comments on diagnosis, offers prognoses, refers to previous cases of his own and of others, refers to his observations on similar conditions and diseases in Europe and remarks on miscegenation, the brotherhood of all sufferers, and numerous other topics, and prescribes appropriate therapies and drugs. Intermittent fever, syphilis, epilepsy, lead poisoning, and dysentery figure prominently among the diagnosis of City Hospital patients examined. Dr. David W. Yandell and Dr. Rogers fill in for Dr. Yandell four and two times each. The index indicates which lectures are theirs.
