Abstract

The medical history bibliography “covers material relating to the medical history of Detroit and includes references to Wayne County, Michigan, and the United States if they have any bearing on Detroit history.”

History

The medical history card catalog "covers material relating to the medical history of Detroit and includes references to Wayne County, Michigan, and the United States if they have any bearing on Detroit history." Entries on the catalog cards and in Anderson's Medicine in Detroit and Michigan, 1837-1940: A Bibliography are frequently similar and often identical. However, subject entries are different.

The researcher should consult both the Bibliography, which was obtained from the Shiffman Medical Library in 1979, and the catalog cards received from the library in the early 1960s. The biography section of the card catalog was retained by the Archives until 1979. At that time it was learned that the Shiftman Medical Library had previously retyped the catalog and used a book rather than a card catalog format. Mary McNamara, Shiftman Medical Library, loaned the book catalog to the Archives. Since the entries were identical, the catalog cards were destroyed and a copy of the book catalog was made. The compiler of the biography catalog was probably Fanny J. Anderson. Sources cited are predominately from the late 1800s to 1966.
