[Identification of item], Daniel Drake Papers, 1824-1846, University Archives and Records Center, University of Louisville, Louisville.
Scope and Content
This incomplete collection consists of ten Xeroxed copies of handwritten manuscripts of Dr. Daniel Drake composed between 1824 and 1846- though many of the manuscripts are undated. The collection is preceeded by correspondence between Dwayne Cox, of the University of Louisville Archives Office, and the Cincinnati Historical Society and Cincinnati General Hospital. The correspondence consists mainly of Mr. Cox's inquiries to the institutions pertaining to what manuscripts are available and the cost of printing and sending them. He apparently wanted the manuscripts to facilitate his documentation of the history of the University of Louisville.
The manuscripts themselves are addressed to a variety of topics. Those grouped in folder no. 2 are formal lectures addressed to the Medical Institute, the Temperance Society of the Medical Institute, and to Medical and Law school students. Folder no. 3 contains four less formal essays. One is a medical essay on aspects of audition. The other three are idealistic, Romantic, advice-giving essays addressed to the needs and interests of young physicians.
These are reading copies only of documents held at the Cincinnati Historical Society. Researchers interested in citation or publication should contact the Cincinnati Historical Society.
