Abstract:

Correspondence, printed material and photographs concerning Robert Abbe and the custodianship of the Abbe Cabinet, 1919-1939, compiled by John H. Girvin, Secretary of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia.

Series 1 contains letters written to Girvin and Librarian Charles Perry Fisher, with copies of some of Fisher's replies, from William W. Keen, custodian of the Abbe Cabinet from 1924 to 1928. The collection also includes letters from previous custodians, Simon Flexner and William Henry Welch, and several letters written by Robert Abbe before his death on 7 Mar. 1928. Other correspondents include: E.B. Krumbhaar, Walter Mendelson, and William J. Taylor. Notable is a letter from Louis B. Laplace to Robert Abbe in which Laplace explains that a flask given to his father by Louis Pasteur will not be available for display in the Abbe Cabinet. The letters document William W. Keen's activities as custodian of the Abbe Cabinet. The topics addressed in Keen's letters include the purchase of a museum case, the addition of the William Harvey cup and saucer and Robert Abbe mementos, and the establishment of the "Dr. Robert Abbe Collection of Medical Medals". Keen also announces his intention to write a history of the Abbe Cabinet and its contents.

Series 2 contains items compiled by Abbe's secretary, May Moon, and sent to Girvin for use in a memorial volume to Robert Abbe. Included are two letters to Girvin from May Moon; bookplates and printed material from Lafayette National Park (now Acadia National Park) in Bar Harbor, Me.; a program from the dedication of the Robert Abbe Museum, also in Bar Harbor; obituaries and memoirs of Robert Abbe; and photoprints of the Robert Abbe Memorial Museum and Abbe's homes in Philadelphia and Bar Harbor. Of special interest is Marie Curie's description (in French) of the electrometer she donated to the College of Physicians and a signed letter (in French, 21 Mar. 1922) to Robert Abbe from Curie. Miscellaneous printed material and photographs are contained in Series 3.
