About this Item

Group of 128 various letters to Dr. William E. Driscoll and his Wife, Margaret, who lived and worked in Goldfield, Cripple Creek Gold Mining District, Colorado. This group exhibits the daily life of a physician in a Colorado mining district, with many of the letters from past and/or contemporary patients expressing their gratitude for Dr. Driscoll¿s diagnoses and treatments, as well as others seeking advice for their current ailments. There is also business correspondence from medical and pharmaceutical companies, along with typical commercial promotions, such as life insurance and book publishers. Most of Mrs. Driscoll¿s letters are from relatives and friends interested in Dr. Driscoll¿s practice, news and progress in ¿America¿s Greatest Gold Camp,¿ as well as Margaret¿s clubs and other social events. Some letters are from the same patient or relative concerned with specific situations; others are solicitations for medical help. The dated letters, of which there are approximately 100, range from 1899 ¿ 1910, with majority being from 1900 ¿ 1905. There are about 26 undated letters that appear to have been written within the same 1900 ¿ 1905 time period. Specific ailments, mining accidents, and contagions are mentioned. There are a number of letters ¿thanking¿ Dr. Driscoll for helping a patient through a particular medical situation. And there are letters concerning family matters. Condition: near fine.
