GRAHAM, S. -- GRAY, Pleasant

 File — Box: 106

Collection Summary

From the Collection:

Collection consists of biographical sketches on note cards for AMA-member physicians that died between 1906-1969. File cards were generated by the AMA when they started collecting information in 1906, until they converted to a computerized system in 1969. Information was gathered from licensing bureaus, medical schools, AMA Membership records, and medical societies, in reference to the physician. No family or detailed health information is available. A few cards were created for Canadian and international physicians based on their obituaries. Licensing cards show the state and year of licensing, based on the name given when examined, and were submitted by each state's medical examiner boards.Graduation cards show only the school the doctor was attending at the time of graduation. Physician cards have the most information. Earlier cards include information about early education, childhood locations, and include licensing information. On later cards, the early education information is rarely given, but a copy of the Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA) obituary is often included, as well as other information related to the physician's death. All licensing notifications (or revocations) are noted by date and location. In a few cases thumbnail pictures or obituaries are attached to the cards. Medical Societies sometimes reported the death of a member of their society, and cards were typed up containing what little information was available (usually, name, date and place of death.)
