Texas State Board of Medical Examiners records

  • IC 058
  • Collection
  • 1907

The Texas State Board of Medical Examiners collection consists primarily of licensure records for more than 6,000 Texas physicians. The license applications and related materials date from 1907 to 1972. A typical doctor's file contains biographical information, licensure applications, registration cards, some correspondence, and usually a photograph. In addition to these files, there are two additional boxes of registration cards that are not accompanied by supplemental information. The collection also contains newsletters, a directory, and lists of doctors newly licensed, which date from 1979-2008.

The physicians documented in this collection were either licensed to practice medicine in Texas in 1907 or applied for licenses or license renewals after 1907 and up to 1972. The files include information on physicians from a variety of medical backgrounds. Many of the doctors practiced traditional medicine as well as osteopathy, but some licenses were issued to doctors trained in eclectic medicine and other non-traditional forms.

Dates provided in the inventory reflect the full range of dates noted in a given doctor's file. They are roughly, but not always exactly, analogous to the doctor's lifespan. The first date given is typically the doctor's birth year, according to the licensure application. The later date may be a death date. However, in some cases it may be the latest date that the license was renewed, or the date when the Board determined that the physician was deceased (sometimes years after the actual death date).
