Scope and Content

Two scrapbooks containing a wide variety of documentation relating to Platt's life, especially to his role as a public figure. These scrapbooks contain many cuttings, but also contain menus, letters, speech notes, membership cards and photographs. These items would be useful for those interested in the surgical profession and the development of state medical care during this period. Both scrapbooks are indexed at the front.
