Summary
On 2 November 1904, the Secretary of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia announced that President Arthur V. Meigs had authorized the formation of a new section of the College, the Section on Medical History. Starting in 1905, the section began holding meetings at which lectures on medical history were presented. The section invited papers from physicians and scholars from a variety of backgrounds; most of these papers were published in Transactions and Studies. By the 1970s, the section had become the sponsor of several annual lectures, including the Kate Hurd Mead Lecture (co-sponsored by the [Woman’s] Medical College of Pennsylvania, now Drexel College of Medicine) which was started in 1952, the Samuel X. Radbill Lecture (1974), and the W. B. McDaniel Memorial Lecture (1976). As of 2021, the Section on Medical History remains an active body of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia. This collection spans the years 1934 through 1957 and includes correspondence, program announcements, reports, and tyepescripts of lectures presented at meetings and other programs
