Description
This collection consists of some correspondence and an unpublished 345 page typescript of a history of medical practice in San Joaquin County (1847-c1947). The history contains photographs and biographies of practitioners and buildings. Barnes apparently compiled and wrote "Doctors" over many years, probably beginning during the 1930s.
