This collection consists of an oversize scrapbook of autographs, biographical sketches, portraits with captions – all related to Dr. Simpson. The provenance of the eight items is unknown. The materials date from 1862-1874.
This artificial collection contains four dental student essays on Wells for an ADA sponsored Centenary contest, published articles about Wells, photographs and facsimiles of the 19th century documents concerning Wells, and programs from events commemorating Well’s contribution to science.
The papers were assembled from scattered locations among the holdings of Kornhauser Health Sciences Library in 1983, in an effort to make them more accessible for research. The collection includes original manuscripts by the Yandells, and a number of printed pamphlets and journal extracts, as well as photocopies of article by and about the physicians.
