  • Abstract

    Michael Mason, a surgeon, received four degrees from Northwestern University. Following his education he taught at Northwestern and revived U.S. Base Hospital No. 12, which operated essentially as a Northwestern military medical unit. Mason's papers fill four folders and contain biographical information, correspondence, and programs and brief histories of the Surgeons Club.

  • Scope and Contents

    The Michael Mason Papers are arranged in four folders, the first of which contains a variety of biographical materials including academic records and related items from Mason's high school, college and graduate education; reprints and several obituaries.

    One folder of correspondence contains a few letters to Mason while another holds half a dozen letters to his widow shortly after his death. Among the correspondents were Drs. Donald Balfour, James Barrett Brown, and Edward Churchill.

    The series is completed by a folder of programs and brief histories of the Surgeons Club, of which Mason was an early member.
