Special Collections, UCSF Library & CKM
Papers include correspondence, and subject files: typescripts and manuscripts (for
published and unpublished articles), photographs and negatives of Greek manuscripts; a
variety of information on the International Congress of the History of Medicine, and
medical notes from the University of Tennessee.
Dr. Codellas received his medical degree in 1922 from the University of Minnesota School
of Medicine, and did an internship at the University of Tennessee, Memphis. He came to
California where he was licensed in 1923.
He had a general medical practice in San Francisco, and was Asst. in Tropical Medicine,
and Lecturer in Medical History and Bibliography at UCSF. His interests in the medical
history of ancient Greece led him to research and lecture on the topic; several
presentations were made to meetings of the American Association for the History of
Medicine, and the 11th International Congress for the History of Medicine in Zagreb, in
1938. On his return from the latter meeting, he was honored with a dinner by the Greek
community of San Francisco. He surveyed the greek medical manuscript resources of the
major libraries in europe, and brought home many photographic copies.
