Collection Description

Biographical Note

Published monthly by the Franklin Steam Printing House in Atlanta, the Georgia Medical Companion was designed to "bring before our readers, at one view, the condensed excellencies of both our home and foreign Medical Literature-the cream of recent investigations and discoveries in the Science of Medicine." The articles included in the Georgia Medical Companion ranged from new methods of treating diseases and experimental research, to suggestions on practice and new remedies. For most of the editions, the contents were divided into four parts: "Original Communications and Special Selections," "Abridged Extracts and Gleanings from our Exchanges," "Biographical, Ethical, Hygienic, and Miscellaneous," and "Editorials, Reviews, Items, and News." The cost of a yearly subscription was $2.

Scope and Content Note

The Georgia Medical Companion Collection includes a bound collection of 8 editions that have since been unbound for preservation reasons. Also includes 6 other editions of the Georgia Medical Companion that are individually foldered.

Arrangement Note
