The Robert L Brown History of Medicine Collection is very pleased to announce the completion of a new digital collection “The Work of a Country Doctor: Digitized Notebooks, Photographs, and Ephemera of Doctor Homer T. Jackson, M.D.”
Please take a moment to enjoy this fantastic new electronic resource.
In 2013, the Collection acquired the collection of Dr. Homer T. Jackson (1846-1926), an upstate New York physician and UB Medical School alumnus (1881) who practiced medicine in the rural village of Verona, NY during the late 19th and early 20th century. The collection includes medical instruments and equipment, personal items, handwritten notebooks, photographs and postcards. Thanks to a grant from the Middle Atlantic Region of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NN/LM), Dr. Jackson’s medical treatments and procedures, pharmacologic formularies, UB medical school class notes, and his notes and reactions to professional literature have been digitized and added to the University Libraries’ Digital Collections.
Additionally, if you’d like to see more of the Dr. Jackson collection in person, please visit us here in the lower level of the Health Sciences Library in Abbott Hall. Visitors are always welcome!
