Summary
The Office of the Librarian of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia was established in 1854. In 1997, governance voted to officially make the Library an historical library. The Director of the Library was in charge of the historical collections, with Public Services in charge of modem reference. In July 2001 the Director's position became that of College Librarian, with the added title of Director of the Francis C. Wood Institute for the History of Medicine. While the Library continued to acquire and save consumer health material and some other current material, the College Librarian's principle duty was the preservation, promotion, and enhancement of the historical collection. This small collection of material documents the operation of the Library from 1883 to 1901. Not all years are represented. It includes correspondence received by the Librarian, Charles Perry Fisher, in 1883; a record of books circulated from 1887 to 1909; and cash book listing donors and the donation amount for the Library's special fund for books, dating from 1899 to 1901
