The Mary G. McEwen Papers fill two boxes and include biographical materials and materials relating to Dr. McEwen's medical education in the form of notebooks documenting her studies.
The biographical materials include a 1927 newspaper interview with Dr. McEwen concerning a European airplane trip as well as three obituaries.
The balance of the papers consists of seven of Dr. McEwen's notebooks. Five contain handwritten notes of lectures and reports of demonstrated cases at the Woman's Medical School. The other two notebooks stem from Dr. McEwen's studies in Vienna. The first contains German and English textual descriptions of a set of gynecological and obstetrical tables (plates). The second contains notes and expanded texts for talks or articles on Viennese hospitals and surgeons and on the history of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
