Job Clark papers

Call Number: MS 18
Scope and Contents
The Job Clark Papers consist of notes, writings, and printed material (1810-1858) relating primarily to the Yale Medical School and the practice of medicine. Clark is listed in the Catalogue of the Medical School of 1815. His medical notes on lectures by Benjamin Silliman, Eli Ives, and Nathan Smith, 1815-1816, are particularly valuable as they relate to the earliest period of medical school history--the Medical Institution was organized August 31, 1813. An addition to the collection focuses more broadly on the entire Clark family and comprises personal correspondence of its members, as well as journal entries and writings, describing their daily lives and interactions.
