Edward Trowbridge Wolf, MD papers

  • MS 003
  • Collection
  • 1928-1982

The Edward Trowbridge Wolf, MD, papers (MS003) is 3 cubic feet and consists of 7 document boxes with some materials also located in the communal oversize box. It contains biographical information, personal and professional correspondence, certificates, official documents, news clippings, telegrams, drawings, and books that detail the personal life, professional activities, medical related records and papers associated with the World War II experiences of Dr. Edward Trowbridge Wolf in the Pacific Theater, various stateside military posts and also the Houston Texas Medical Center. Wolf was the executor of estate for Mr. Isiah Leebove and as a result the legal and financial documents related to the Leebove estate are included here. The materials are in good condition; however there is some evidence of water damage probably caused by the flooding of the archives during tropical storm Allison in 2001. As a result, ink applied by pens often has been washed away or is illegible. Ink applied by typewriters is clearly legible in the documents. After the flood, the archivists took steps to preserve and restore the collection. The material is unrestricted with a few exceptions (for Patients Diagnosis) that are clearly marked in the detailed description and on the box and folders. The collection is 3 cubic feet (7 boxes) and in good condition.
