Photocopies and one original annual announcement from the Louisville National Medical College founded for African Americans in 1888 by W. A. Burney, R. Conrad, and Henry Fitzbutler, M.D. The school closed in 1912.
These materials, belonging to Dr. Ralph Morris, were identified in 1996 during the processing of the personal papers of his wife, Lois. They reflect the professional, personal and public interests of an African-American physician in Louisville, Kentucky in the years 1955-1990. Alcina Morris' (Ralph's mother) correspondence is also found along with indications that she - and perhaps even for a time her son Ralph - had lived in Trinidad. Dr. Morris died August 7, 1998 at age 76.
The collection contains plaques, awards, and other honorary items bestowed on Maurice and Jewel Rabb.
