Board of Trustees, Office of the Treasurer (Schur)

These Treasurer's Office files contain records from the years 1948-1976. The bulk of this collection falls between 1960-1974, when Ira A. Schur was Treasurer.
The types of records in this collection are varied and numerous and they reveal the activities and priorities of the Treasurer's Office over this time. They include: minutes of Board of Trustee meetings and of various committees; correspondence with administration, faculty, other institutions, businesses, governmental agencies, lawyers, and many others; printed reports concerning various aspects of the Hospital; loan requests; employee agreements; and various budgetary reports.
The documentation reveals a few recurring themes. A large percentage of the records concern personnel management. Among the employee related material are: employee agreements and contracts; retirement agreements; data on retirement funds; tax annuity reports; private practice agreements; and comparative studies of executive benefits, perquisites, and salaries. Two sets of folders in the collection relate directly to employee benefit issues. The first contains the files of the Ad Hoc Committee for Executive Benefits, which existed from 1962-1970 to determine appropriate benefits for executive level personnel. They are found in folders labeled "Executive Insurance and Benefits." The second folder group contains the records of the Compensation Committee, which was formed in 1972 (the records continue to 1973) and had similar objectives to that of the previously mentioned Ad Hoc Committee. This second series is found in folders labeled "Compensation Committee."
There are several other subjects that recur in these files. Many documents relate to funds and fundraising, including records concerning funds for the then new Annenberg Building and School of Medicine. There are many documents relating to the tax status of corporations, house staff, executives, and other employees. Also found here is correspondence regarding the incorporation of The Mount Sinai Medical Center and name changes for Mount Sinai School of Medicine. In addition, as might be expected, there are data on expenses and supply costs.
Throughout the collection is correspondence with many prominent Mount Sinai individuals including Gustave Levy, Chairman of the Boards of Trustees; Martin Steinberg, MD, Director of The Mount Sinai Hospital from 1948 to 1969; Hans Popper, MD, Ph.D., Chairman of the Department of Pathology and President/Dean of Mount Sinai; Jack Herman, Director of Development; and S. David Pomrinse, MD, Director of The Mount Sinai Hospital from 1969 to 1977.
The Treasurer's Office hired outside consulting firms to perform many studies. Included in the collection are a compensation study completed by the Martin E. Segal Company (1973) and a Mount Sinai Medical Center report on tax shelter annuity programs conducted by S. B. Ackerman Associates (1973).
Ira A. Schur conducted the majority of his Treasurer's responsibilities from his office at S. D. Leidesdorf and Co. where he worked from 1916 until his retirement in 1969. However, there are many documents that reveal that he also conducted business at Mount Sinai and occasionally from his homes in Manhattan and Scarsdale, New York.
The files contained in this collection are of value for many reasons, one being the level of the office and its importance to the institution. Another aspect that brings value to these records is their relative completeness and comprehensiveness. An examination of these records provides an understanding of the evolution and workings of the Treasurer's Office.
It is difficult to say what gaps the collection may have since the records were not donated directly from the Treasurer's office and contain files only as recent as 1976. However, it is surprising that there is only minimal mention of issues regarding property and no information on banking or evidence of bank accounts and bill payments, which are all major responsibilities of the office. On the whole, the collection lacks budgetary data. Although it does contain some budgetary reports and financial statements, the majority of the collection is composed of day to day personnel and individually-focused issues.

Isidor Clinton Rubin, MD papers

  • US AA009
  • Collection
  • 1904-1959

The papers found in this collection are overwhelmingly of a professional nature: notebooks, notes, papers, reprints. Still, it is possible in reviewing these files to get some insights into Dr. Rubin as a person. The records that serve best to do this are the letters written to him over the years (Box 1) and the photographs that came as a part of this collection. Also, interspersed with his notes (see, for instance Box 3, f.2), are sheets of paper filled with "jottings", lists of trite phrases that seemed to have some relationship, one to the next. In the file of his own writings (Box 1, f.8), further aspects of him can be seen in a note on ancestral worship, and a letter to his wife in 1921. Also of note here is a file compiled in 1935 during a failed attempt to secure Dr. Rubin a Nobel Prize for his development of the Rubin Test. (See Box 2, f.5)

The professional material contains notes and raw data, as well as papers in progress and his collected works. The notebooks include those from his medical school days at Columbia Physicians and Surgeons in 1904 and 1905, as well as notes taken while studying in Vienna. Some of the latter were written in German. The notebooks are arranged chronologically.

The Papers/Reprints files are arranged alphabetically by subject or title, depending on how Rubin labeled the folders. These papers are mostly all undated. The files many times contain long notes on the topic and show Rubin's thoughts and questions he wanted to solve. If no paper was included in the file with the notes, they were simply labeled "Notes" and filed under that heading.

Other items of particular interest or value in this collection include the typed copies of articles relating to fibroid tumors, dating from 1878-1932. (Box 1, f.3) There is a long note about a visit he made to Austria in the early 1920's where he discusses the changes brought by the First World War. (Box 1, f.8) Finally, there are operative assignments from 1911, listing which operations Dr. Rubin performed on a given day and his notes about the case. On these, and throughout the collection, there are many drawings to illustrate pathology or technique. Any patient information here is restricted according to the law and the policies of the Archives.

One of the more interesting parts of this collection is the photographs that accompany it. They date from 1907-1958, mostly black and white. Of special note are a series of snapshots from the Rubins' trip to Greece in June, 1952 to receive an honorary degree from the University of Athens. There is also a photograph of Dr. Rubin's private examining room in 1911. Dr. Hiram Vineberg is pictured in Mount Sinai's clinical amphitheatre in 1907, supervising an operation without surgical masks. There are also many photos of unidentified babies, usually with an inscription of thanks to Dr. Rubin.

Many of the photographs are oversize. These can be found in Box 7. The photographs of events, many in rolls, are stored in Box 6. Memorabilia, a Jacobi Medallion and two souvenir money clips, have been placed in Box 5.

Rubin, Isidor Clinton, 1883-1958

Syllabi of Mount Sinai School of Medicine

These are the syllabi produced by faculty members of Mount Sinai School of Medicine. The copies for the undergraduate medical program were produced and distributed by the Office of Medical Education. The syllabi from the Graduate School of Biological Sciences were distributed by the Dean’s Office. Many of the Archives’ copies of the early years are bound volumes that were created by the Levy Library.

There are two series of records here: syllabi for the undergraduate medical education program and syllabi for the Graduate School of Biological Sciences, today’s Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. The MD program syllabi provide information about the curriculum of Mount Sinai School of Medicine and how the subjects were presented to students. The syllabi primarily cover the courses in the first two years of medical school, with very few describing the clerkships found in the final two years. The syllabi for the first four years of the School’s existence are preserved in their entirety to show how the new school structured their coursework. After the early years, the Archives has generally only retained the paper syllabi for new courses as they were introduced. For non-basic science courses, the Archives has preserved a more complete selection of syllabi to illustrate how teaching on topics such as Student Well Being, Medical Ethics, and Sexual Assault has evolved over time. The Archives’ holdings were never complete, so this selection may also be missing items.

In 2012, with the decommissioning of the WebEd learning management system, the Aufses Archives took custody of syllabus content stored in WebEd. All MD course content stored in WebEd was saved, but note that the subset of courses in WebEd may not reflect the entire MD course catalog for any particular year. The level of detail provided by the WebEd content for particular courses varies widely, from simple lecture schedules to elaborate content outlines. These items are arranged chronologically by academic year and span AY 2006-2007 to AY 2010-2011. The electronic collection of syllabus content also includes two additional electronic syllabi from AY 2001-2002 which were received in lieu of paper copies. All syllabi have been stored in the Mount Sinai Digital Repository in a restricted collection. This collection is a subdivision of the ISMMS Department of Medical Education community.

The syllabi of courses in the Graduate School of Biological Sciences are electronic only. Syllabi from AY 2006-2007 to AY 2010-2011 were downloaded from WebEd during its decommissioning. An additional collection of syllabi from AY 2011-2012 was downloaded from the Blackboard learning management system, which replaced WebEd.

Graduate School courses represented include content from the general PhD program, the Master of Public Health Program (which became the Graduate Program in Public Health in 2013), and the Masters in Clinical Research program. As with the MD syllabi, the Graduate School syllabus collection reflects what was stored in the WebEd and Blackboard systems at the time of retrieval, not the entire course catalog, and the level of detail of the syllabi varies widely. Graduate School syllabi have been stored as restricted collections in the Mount Sinai Digital Repository in the community of their associated degree program.
