William Beaumont Papers | Bernard Becker Medical Library Archives

Collection Overview

Title: William Beaumont PapersAdd to your cart.

Predominant Dates:1807-1853

ID: PC/PC001

Extent: 8.0 Linear Feet

Arrangement:

Little is known about the original arrangement of the Beaumont Papers.  Beginning in the 1960s, the School of Medicine Library staff began a project to organize and index the collection.  The documents were placed in chronological order, and four indexes were created to facilitate access to the collection: name, place, date, and subject indexes.  These four indexes were published in 1968 as the Index to the Wm. Beaumont, M.D. (1785-1853) Manuscript Collection compiled by Phoebe A. Cassidy and Roberta S. Sokol, with an introduction by Estelle Brodman.

At the time that the 1968 Index was compiled, the collection was stored in a series of folders that were housed in metal filing cabinets.  Within the folders, each document was protected by a separate paper sheath, most of which bear annotations by Brodman on which the indexing was based.  Brodman discusses the rationale for this system in her introduction to the 1968 Index.

In the interest of preservation, the documents were placed in acid-free folders and document boxes in 2010.  The chronological document order of the original 1968 Index was maintained, and the date index was used to create the container list below.  The 1968 Index included many helpful elements such as author, author’s location, recipient, and recipient’s location.  This information is included in the new container list as well.  Additionally, new box and folder numbers were assigned to each document in the collection.  The place index and name index were updated to include these changes.  The 1968 subject index proved to be of little use to researchers, and was therefore omitted from the present finding aid.

Biographical/Historical Note

William Beaumont was born on November 21, 1785 in Lebanon, Connecticut.  In 1810, he apprenticed himself to Dr. Benjamin Chandler of St. Albans, Vermont.  After serving two years as an apprentice, Beaumont was licensed by the Vermont Medical Society to practice medicine.  When the War of 1812 broke out between England and the United States, Beaumont joined the army as a surgeon’s mate where he served much of his time treating soldiers at York (now Toronto, Canada) and Plattsburgh, New York.  He resigned his commission from the army in 1815 and opened a private medical practice in Plattsburgh.

Beaumont rejoined the army in 1820, where he was granted the rank of post surgeon.  Before leaving for his new post at Michilimackinac (Mackinac Island) in Michigan, he married Deborah Platt Green.  While stationed at Fort Mackinac, he treated a French Canadian named Alexis St. Martin who had been accidentally shot in his left side.  Beaumont saved the patient’s life, but St. Martin’s wound healed with a permanent opening in his abdomen through which the interior of his stomach was exposed.  This accident, along with St. Martin’s cooperation during the following two decades, afforded Beaumont the opportunity to conduct experiments on the functions of the human stomach.  Beaumont eventually published the results of these investigations in Experiments and Observations on the Gastric Juice and the Physiology of Digestion, a landmark of American medical research.

Following his service in Michigan, Beaumont continued serving in the army where he was transferred to Fort Niagara (New York) in 1825, to Fort Crawford (Wisconsin) in 1829, and finally to Jefferson Baracks (Saint Louis, Missouri) in 1834.  While stationed in Missouri, he was appointed Professor of Surgery at the Medical Department of Saint Louis University in 1837.  Rather than be transferred again, Beaumont finally resigned from the army in 1839 at the age of fifty-two.  Upon his resignation, he remained in Saint Louis where he maintained a private practice until his death on April 25, 1853.

Scope and Contents of the Materials

The Beaumont collection includes correspondence, notebooks and casebooks, pre-publication drafts, notes, certificates, press clippings, and legal and financial documents.  The major subject of the collection is the Alexis St. Martin case and the pioneering and controversial experiments on St. Martin that illuminated the physiology of human digestion.  The papers also document Beaumont’s strong influence on his family including his wife, parents, siblings, and children; his career as a U. S. army surgeon, 1812-1939; land speculation in Plattsburgh, Green Bay and Saint Louis; and his service on the U.S. Army Board and professional associations.  Of local interest is the correspondence on Beaumont’s medical practice in Saint Louis, 1939-1853; two malpractice lawsuits; the Saint Louis Medical College where Beaumont served as a faculty member; and the politics in the Saint Louis medical community.

The manuscript collection described below consists of three document series arranged predominantly in chronological order.  Series 1 includes all items that were described in the 1968 Index.  For reasons never discussed in the 1968 Index, many items in the gift of papers to Washington University were omitted from its elaborate analysis.  These items now make up Series 2 and Series 3 of the Beaumont Papers.  Beaumont’s notebooks are compiled into Series 2.  Newspaper clippings and book reviews that were once in the possession of Beaumont and his family make up Series 3.
