Abstract:

Collection consists largely of correspondence, diaries, and journals. Diaries document events throughout his cruises, such as sea life, military regimen, and alcohol use. Ruschenberger noted weather conditions, giving statistics for latitude, longitude, air and water temperature, barometric readings, and prevailing winds. Letters document his concern with methods of appointment, pay, military assignments, problems of promotion and retirement, education for assistants and doctors, the selection and distribution of hospital and infirmary staff, family relationships, United States politics, and his publications. Morale, politics, and reform of the service are also discussed. Correspondence and diaries reflect his professional involvement in medicine and general science. Diary entries describe Ruschenberger's trip around the world with the East India Squadron and his travels to the Malay Peninsula; China; Brazil, particularly Rio de Janeiro and the suburbs of Botafogo and Tijuca; Chile; including the cities of Valparaiso and Santiago; Anger Island in Java; and Panama. Diaries and correspondence mention the activities of Simon Bolivar in Chile and Peru.
