This collection consists of 176 photographs and prints taken and collected by Harold A. Bulger and relating to the history of medical education in St. Louis. Depicted subjects include Joseph Nash McDowell and Missouri Medical College, St. Louis Medical and Missouri Dental College, Beaumont Hospital Medical College, St. John's Hospital, Washington University Hospital, St. Louis University Medical Department, Marion-Sims College of Medicine, Barnes Medical College, St. Louis College of Physicians and Surgeons, American Medical College, and Homoeopathic Medical College of Missouri. Many of the photographs were taken by Bulger in the 1930s to document the former sites of defunct insitutions. The photographs are often mounted and juxtaposed with prints of drawings or engravings depicting the medical college buildings at their former locations in St. Louis. Some of the prints depict Missouri Medical College (also known as McDowell Medical College) when it was taken over and used as a military prison during the Civil War. Many of the original prints, photographs, and daguerrotypes are housed by the Missouri Historical Society, and copy prints were made for Bulger.
