Manuscript (MS) 159, The Herbert Fred, MD Papers, is a collection of papers related to Dr. Fred's medical career and personal life in five self-defined series: Medical, Running, Writing, Family, and Religious. Herbert Leonard Fred, MD was born in 1929 in Waco, Texas. He is known for his contribution to medical education. He is an award-winning clinician, diagnostician, and professor of internal medicine. In keeping with the beliefs of Sir William Osler, Dr. Fred, an emeritus American Osler Society member, centered his medical practice on the patient, championing the use of the mind and five senses to develop medical diagnoses.

Dr. Fred studied at Rice Institute from 1946 to 1950, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine from 1950 to 1954, and University of Utah Hospitals from 1954 to 1957. After service in the United States Air Force, he returned to Houston, Texas where he joined the faculty of Baylor University College of Medicine from 1962 to 1969. Ensuing academic appointments included: University of Texas Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences from 1968 to the present; Director of Medical Education, St. Joseph Hospital from 1969 to 1988; The University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston from 1971 to the present; Rice University from 1979 to 2002; and HCA Center for Health Excellence from 1988 to 1993.

Formats include text; visual works in photographic, slide, pastel chalk, and pencil; audio works in video and audio on compact disc and magnetic tape along with award and gift realia. Dr. Fred collected images of disease conditions and symptoms throughout his career to use for medical education.

With a date range from 1890 to 2013, the collection consists of 112 cubic feet in 88 boxes plus several realia objects in the Oversize collection.
