The Tamiesie Collection

Again, just peeking in boxes I find many interesting items. Today I stumbled upon the George W. Tamiesie collection. The finding aid for this collection is even online. (pdf) It consists of three notebooks full of pencil notes; most of which would take a lot of time and concentration for me to read--namely because I'm unused to reading such beautiful script!

Pictured below are the cover and interior pages of one notebook. On the outside is written "general notes in gynecology."


Perhaps my favorite page, however, is this one.

Yes, that says:
Friday, Dec 7
K.A.J. Mac.
Jaundice
I am assuming that these are lecture notes, not notes on a patient named K.A.J. MacKenzie, with jaundice!
