Collection of Abraham Jacobi, MD papers

  • US AA002
  • Collection
  • 1876-1928

These papers consist of material by and about Dr. Abraham Jacobi and were gathered by The Mount Sinai Hospital over the years due to his importance to the Hospital. The most interesting component of the collection is the folder of eleven letters, which relate primarily to Dr. Jacobi's various roles at Mount Sinai, in particular his service as Chairman of the Supervisory Committee of the Dispensary and as the Pediatrician in Chief. The latter is represented by a letter from 'several Pacints' [sic] complaining to Jacobi about the cruelty of the Night Nurse on the ward. There is also an interesting letter from Emil Gruening, MD in 1909 commenting about the problems he has had in the Eye and Ear Department with an unnamed adjunct physician. There are also two letters where Jacobi offers his assessment of two unnamed patients.

Jacobi, A. (Abraham), 1830-1919
