The medical lectures concern various aspects of women's health, childbirth, legal medicine, and general medicine including cholera and homeopathy. Non-medical writings and lectures cover topics including art, education, and politics. Additional writings and lectures on topics such as temperance and public health reflect Channing's personal interest in social and moral reform.
The collection also contains Channing's midwifery case notebook, kept from 1811-1822, and notes and case reports from additional midwifery and general medicine cases. Reports generally summarize the patient's history and describe their current symptoms, and detail the treatments prescribed or performed by Channing. Personal papers include autobiographical writings, wills, an account book, kept from 1869-1871, and a scrapbook containing diary entries made by his wife, Barbara Higginson Perkins, March - Oct. 1821. Also included is a manuscript for Channing's travel memoir, A Physician's Vacation (1856), describing his travels to Europe in 1852.
