Abstract:

Collection forms part of the records of the Office of the Librarian of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia. Included is correspondence, material from annual meetings of the MLA, and other miscellaneous items pertaining to the organization, 1899-1929. The records are from the files of Charles Perry Fisher, Librarian of the College from 1882 to 1932.

Series 1 contains correspondence concerning Fisher's involvement on the Executive and Finance Committees and as Vice President of the Medical Library Association. Much of the correspondence concerns the "Exchange", an MLA program which allowed for the exchange of medical literature among its members. The letters document the problems experienced by the Exchange, including its near dissolution in 1923 when Marcia C. Noyes, Manager of the Exchange, resigned from her position. Also documented in the collection is the death of John H. Musser, President of the MLA, in 1912, when Fisher became Acting President.

Of special interest in Series 1 is correspondence concerning a 1924 MLA resolution, which stated that libraries should no longer purchase German books and periodicals, because German publishers were charging "unreasonable and unjustifiable" prices. Included are letters from William W. Keen and letters from German publishers who denied the charges brought against them. Prominent correspondents in the collection are James F. Ballard and John Ruhräh. Other notable correspondents are: Ada Bunnell, M. R. Charlton, George Dock, George M. Gould, George D. Hersey, Albert Tracy Huntingdon, Marcia C. Noyes, and C. F. Wylde. Also present in the collection are holograph drafts and typed carbon copies of Charles Perry Fisher's letters. Series 2 contains material from MLA annual meetings, including a Secretary's Report (1900), programs (1906-1929), minutes from the 1910 meeting, and a typescript of Fisher's 1912 Presidential Address. Present in Series 3 is miscellaneous material from the MLA, including membership applications, membership lists, informational pamphlets, copies of the Constitution and By-Laws (1903-1929), and the sketches of two different shields designed for the MLA (1921).
