The Work of a Country Doctor: Digitized Notebooks, Photographs, and Ephemera of Doctor Homer T. Jackson, M.D.

About the Collection

In 2013, the Robert L. Brown History of Medicine Collection, located within the University at Buffalo's (UB) Health Sciences Library, acquired the collection of Dr. Homer T. Jackson (1846-1926), an upstate New York physician and UB alumnus who practiced medicine in the rural village of Verona, NY during the late 19th 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.
