Waring Historical Library Inaugural Theses

With funding provided by the National Library of Medicine's Express Library Digitization Award program, The Waring Library has scanned and transcribed 133 of its inaugural medical theses, for the period of 1825-1829. The 1,858 inaugural medical theses in the collection of the Waring Historical Library are, in the words of eminent medical historian John Harley Warner, "one of the finest extant collections of antebellum American medical theses." He went on to write that "The collection of the Medical College of the State of South Carolina deposited at the Waring Historical Library represents a remarkably large and complete collection spanning a critical period of transition in the history of both of American medicine and of the South."
