Sir William Osler Scrapbook, 1913-1950

This digital project represents a scrapbook of letters and articles between Dean Wilburt C. Davison and Sir William and Lady Grace Osler. The first page of this scrapbook bears the inscription: "Wilburt Cornell Davison from William Osler, in memory of Oxford, July 27, 1916". Material consists largely of letters from Sir William Osler and his wife, Lady Grace Osler, to Dean Davison. There are also letters from Lady Grace Osler to Davison's wife, Atala Thayer Davison, and from Lady Grace's sister, Susan R. Chapin to Davison. All letters in the original scrapbook are accompanied by typed transcripts laid in with originals. These transcriptions have been rekeyed as part of this project in order to provide searchable text. Newspaper clippings include articles either by or relating to Osler and obituaries of Osler's and of Lady Osler's death. There is also a short manuscript by Davison, "Sir Williams Osler's story of his life".
