George Dock notebooks, 1899-1908

16 volumes — 1 oversize volume — 1 folder

George Dock was a professor in the University of Michigan Medical School from 1891 to 1922. Dock employed a stenographer to record, verbatim, his biweekly diagnostic clinic sessions with fourth-year medical students from 1899 through 1908. The resulting 6,800 pages of transcripts provide a detailed picture of medical instruction at the turn of the twentieth century. This collection contains those notebooks as well as a scrapbook of news clippings and a few photographs.

The bulk of this collection is comprised of sixteen volumes of transcriptions taken from Dr. George Dock’s Diagnostics Clinic, which were made by a stenographer twice a week while class was in session from 1899 through 1908. The transcriptions capture, verbatim, Dock’s teaching and his exchanges with students and patients in a clinical instructional setting. Processing staff sought identifying information about the stenographer(s) responsible for the transcriptions but found none. The collection also contains a scrapbook Dock kept containing news clippings and a folder of miscellaneous photographs including portraits and a photograph of a sculpture of Dock commissioned in 1935.
