"Justice Brandeis and the University of Louisville", 1938, 1946
Scope and Contents
The materials in these files were created from 1915 to 2001. The collection consists of correspondence, essays, articles, reports, cash books, and court case materials. Other items include official course catalogues, commencement programs, yearbooks, magazines, photographs, and news clippings. A large portion of the collection documents communication among Middlesex Board of Trustees members and discussions between the Board and the Albert Einstein Foundation and the American Medical Association. A considerable amount of administrative records were most likely lost in a 1936 fire in the administration building. Most of the correspondence from the Board of Trustees and the American Medical Association dates from 1937 onward.
This collection has research relevance in many subject areas such as the history of medicine, medical school quotas, ethnicity and race in medical education, women and medical education, and Jewish genealogy.
