Title:
Letter from William Osler to Francis J. Shepherd [Transcript]
Description:
He discusses plans to travel to Montreal for Christmas. His work at Blockley keeps him busy: he has 80 patients to look after. He writes that public comments made by Shepherd re. Canada Medical Association & the Quebec profession will "stir up dust.". [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.
