At a3Genealogy we are hooked on researching “off-beat” collections. When researching U. S. Army Surgeon General’s Office Autobiographical Sketches of Medical Officers, or the National League for Nursing records, or the U. S. Army Surgeon General’s Office Autobiographical Sketches of Naval Medical Officers we turn to the U. S. National Library of Medicine Archival and Manuscript (NLM)Collections.
Our favorite collection at the NLM is The American Medical Association (AMA) Deceased Physicians Master Card File.
