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.
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.
