Letter from William Osler to Franklin P. Mall [Transcript]
Osler congratulates Mall on the Anatomical Bulletin. He offers advice on how the Bulletin should be handled in the future.
[Description courtesy of McGill University.]
About this transcript: Soon after Osler's death in 1919, Lady Osler asked their good friend Dr. Harvey Cushing to write a biography. For this project, Cushing gathered a wide variety of material, including a substantial amount of Osler correspondence and other memorabilia borrowed from Osler's family, friends, and colleagues. He employed three secretaries to transcribe these documents, and later donated the transcripts (along with his other working materials) to the Osler Library. Because many of the original documents were returned to the owners, the Cushing transcripts constitute the largest and most accessible collection of Osler's correspondence.
Harvey Cushing's "Life of Sir William Osler" was published by Oxford University Press in 1925, and was awarded a Pulitzer Prize in 1926.

Dear Mall
Congratulations on Anatomical Bulletin! I spent 'church-time' yesterday morning reading it & got 'hauled over the coals' for not joining my family at St. Paul's! Do you not think that with vol. X the bulletin might be made the organ of the School? We should not throw all the work on Hurd - an Editorial Committee - one from each Department, with a salaried man to collect material & Reid proves could manage it very well.
Sincerely yours
Wm Osler
