The George M. Chapman papers contain a complete set of the 1908 volume of
The Medical World. The periodical advertises medical instruments, equipment, and more and includes many classified ads. Doctors across the county wrote to the editors of the journal. They often asked other professionals for advice about troubling cases and submitted medical anecdotes.
The Medical World was published by the W.B. Saunders Company in Philadelphia.
