Now Online: Prominent Physicians, Surgeons, and Medical Institutions of Cook County, c.1900

Research Tips

Finally online! A great resource for CAMA members and anyone interested in the history of medicine in the Chicago area.

"Surgical Operation, Dr. Marie J. Mergler's Clinic, Woman's Hospital," page 259
Prominent Physicians, Surgeons, and Medical Institutions of Cook County in the Closing Year of the Nineteenth Century was digitized recently by the Rush University Medical Center Archives. The Rush Archives received a Book Digitization Initiative Grant from the Consortium of Academic and Research Libraries in Illinois (CARLI) last September. This two-volume collection of biographical sketches, descriptions of hospitals and medical schools, and beautiful photographs was the perfect candidate for digitization. 

"Cook County Hospital," page 431

The book also features wonderful images of surgical clinics, patient wards, and laboratories.

You can read and search the book online, download it as a PDF or full text, and even download it to your Kindle, iPhone, or other portable device.
