Acquisition Information

The Papers of Samuel X. Radbill were purchased and donated to the Library in 2004 by Robert L. Chevalier, M.D., Benjamin Armistead Shepherd Professor of Pediatrics and Chair of the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Virginia School of Medicine.


Biographical/Historical Information

Samuel X. Radbill was born in Philadelphia in 1901. He was educated in the Philadelphia public schools and received his medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine in 1924. On December 27, 1925 he married Frances Hoffman. On June 1, 1926 he moved into 7043 Elmwood Avenue, in the Eastwick Section of Philadelphia, where he had his home and his office. His wife, a nurse, assisted him in his practice. He practiced in this office until his retirement in 1982. In 1938 he was certified as a pediatrician and provided pediatric services at Children's Hospital and Philadelphia General Hospital. He died in November 1987.

Radbill was a dedicated clinician, but he also was a scholar and a medical historian. Throughout his career he lectured and authored over several hundred reviews, articles, and books about medical history. Radbill actively collected books, physicians' book plates, and pediatric implements.

Scope and Content

This collection is composed of Radbill's drafts, footnotes, and manuscript for the book, "The Autobiographical Ana of Robley Dunglison, M.D." published by the American Philosophical Society, December 1963. Robley Dunglison (1798-1969) was brought from England to Charlottesville, Virginia by Thomas Jefferson to serve as the first full-time Professor of Medicine at the University of Virginia in 1825. Dunglison left in 1833 to teach at the University of Maryland. In 1836 he moved to Philadelphia and continued his career at Jefferson Medical College of Philadelphia. Dunglison was one of the more eminent and nationally recognized medical figures of his time.

In 1852 Dungison prepared his "Ana" in order to preserve his personal recollections. He included letters and other records to personally document his memories. As the editor, Radbill organized Dunglison's work, wrote the introduction, and added footnotes to emphasize medical schools, medical education, medical literature, and also to identify the numerous individuals mentioned in Robley's text.

Arrangement

This collection was removed from 8 large binders and one box. Information from each binder was kept in order, but divided into folders using the published book as a reference guide.
