University of Nashville Medical School faculty photographic archive. Includes CDVs labeled as Prof. J.B. (John Berrien) Lindsley, Dr. V.S. Lindsley, Prof. T.R. Jennings, John W. Hanner, Jr., Prof. Joseph Jones, Rev. S.D. Baldwin D.D. (T.S. Saltsman, Nashville, photographer label verso), Dr. T.B. Buchanan (includes what appears to be his autograph, verso), and Prof. C.K. Winston, along with an unidentified CDV of a young man (Charles C. Giers, Nashville, photographer label verso), and a CDV of a two story gabled house with figures, horse and buggy outside. Also included is a University of Nashville Lecture card with the signatures of W.K. Bowling and Mr. W.M. Noel (dated 1852). A photocopy from the University of Nashville Medical Department Catalog of 1865-66 identifies Jones, Bowling, Jennings, both Lindsleys, Winston, and Buchanan as 7 of the 9 faculty members of the school. Also included is an 1856 copy of THE MEDICAL EXAMINER: A MONTHLY RECORD OF MEDICAL SCIENCE, ed. by Samuel Hollingsworth, M.D. published Lindsay & Blakiston, Philadelphia. Note: John Berrien Lindsley organized the Medical Department of the University of Nashville, was elected Chancellor, and established Montgomery Bell Academy. Joseph Jones was also quite prominent: by the time he joined the University of Nashville faculty, he had worked as a Confederate Surgeon and conducted investigations into medical problems in the army of Northern Virginia and Tennessee and among prisoners of war at Andersonville. His Civil War experience led to his noteworthy research on Malaria and other infectious diseases. He went on to work at Tulane University School of Medicine and was president of the Board of Health of Louisiana and Surgeon General of the United Confederate Veterans (research material on Jones included). Condition: Some toning and foxing to CDVs, light stains, wear and small losses to medical journal.
