Abstract:

Some correspondence from the American Philosophical Society Library is with Sir James Paget and J. L. LeConte, but the bulk is with Simon Flexner and I. Minis Hays. The Flexner correspondence is primarily about the National Academy of Sciences. There is also extensive correspondence between Flexner and John Sedgwick Billings, much of which is on the 1916 New York poliomyelitis epidemic. The correspondence with Hays is primarily about the International Medical Congress of 1887 held in Washington, D.C. and the controversies which eventually led to Billings's resignation from its organizing committee.

The correspondence from the College of Physicians is with John B. Roberts, John Ashhurst, and S. Weir Mitchell, and concerns the American Surgical Association, the Library of the Surgeon General's Office, and the 1887 International Medical Congress.
