Scope and content

This collection consists of 24 documents and photographs related to the education of Heinrich Wilhelm Homeyer in Germany in the late 19th century. The majority of the documents refer to Homeyer's medical education, but the collection also includes his high school matriculation certificate and his undergraduate matriculation certificate, as well as his credentials to study medicine. Homeyer's medical school disseration was translated from the original German in 1986 by Marion McGuinn, former Rare Book Librarian at Becker Library. His translation and an annotated photocopy of the dissertation are also included in this collection.

System of arrangement

This collection was originally cataloged as a visual collection [VC125], however, only two items in the collection are photographs and the remainder are documents. The collection was therefore updated as a personal collection in September 2018, and given the new collection number PC162.
