Historia

Thomas Davidson Dow, DDS was a Michigan dentist who built an extensive collection of books on dentistry and the records of state dental societies. Dr. Dow was born in Ontario in 1876. He graduated from the University of Michigan dental school in 1900 and went on the practice in Stanton, Michigan until his retirement in 1947. He served as historian for the Michigan State Dental Association, publishing numerous articles in its Journal, and receiving the Association's Centennial Award in 1956. He died on January 29, 1960, in Marne, Michigan.

Dr. Dow collected for more than fifty years, ultimately amassing what was referred to as "the largest privately owned dental library in the country." Dr. Dow's collection was international and, while focused on late 19th century and early 20th century works, contained some manuscripts dating to the 1600s.

In 1960 the University of Texas Dental Branch (UTDB) Library purchased his collection. In 2010, Dr. Dow’s collection and other historical books on dentistry were transferred to The TMC Library.
