Notebooks, various subjects, undated [1890s-1910], 1908-1911.

This series consists of 15 notebooks in German and English made by Dr. Leo Loeb and an art sketchbook of unknown authorship. Many of the notebooks are undated and are tentatively dated from the address of the stationers that sold them and the known chronology of Leo Loeb's life, education, and places of residence. According to his autobiography in Ingles' "A dozen doctors," (1963), Loeb left Germany in 1890 for Zurich due to prevailing nationalism. At the University of Zurich in 1890 to 1892, he took the fundamental scientific courses which constituted the first part of the study of medicine. From1892-1895, he was at the University of Edinburgh and the London Hospital for a clinical clerkship. From 1895 to 1897 he finished up his clinical work at the University of Zurich and passed the state examination in 1897. The M.D. required a dissertation. For his dissertation work under Hugo Ribbet, Leo Loeb began in 1895 an extensive series of transplantation experiments of tumors and of various types of normal tissues. He continued tissue transplantation work until 1942.
