• Baltimore College of Dental Surgery Letters Finding Aid

      Wink, Tara (2019-12)
      The Baltimore College of Dental Surgery Letters contains letters relating to the administrative business of the school. The letters are dated across the leadership dates of four deans: Ferdinand J.S. Gorgas (1865-1882), Richard B. Winder (1882-1894), M. Whillden Foster (1895-1913), and William G. Foster (1914-1923). Most letters contain inquiries about admittance to the school, tuition costs, textbooks, letters of reference, and other academic affairs. Other letters regard the deans’ editorship of academic dental journals and the business affairs of the school, including bills and receipts for dental supplies and utilities.
