Overview and metadata sections

William Notley Jones (1809-1887), began practice in Hebron, West Virginia, in 1840. His son, Anderson Porter Jones (1852-1933), was a physician in Hebron and Pennsboro, West Virginia. A. P. Jones studied medicine at the College of Physicians and Surgeons in Baltimore, Maryland, and at St. Louis Physicians and Surgeons School. He did not graduate from either school, but joined his father, William Notley Jones, in his practice in Hebron in 1897. In the early 1900s, A. P. Jones moved his practice to Pennsboro. A. P. Jones had two children: Oda (1880-1954) and Latimer (1884-1956). Latimer studied at the College of Physicians and Surgeons in Baltimore and worked with his father in the practice in Hebron. Latimer's son, James P. Jones (1810-1974), received his M.D. from the University of Maryland Medical School in 1937, and joined the family practice in 1938.

This is a collection of medical and family papers of three generations of the Jones family (Anderson P. Jones, Latimer P. Jones, and James P. Jones). Materials include: daybooks (1896-1952); physician's logbooks (1938-1968); account and billing ledgers; file cards for patients; bills and receipts for medical supplies and pharmaceuticals; prescription registers; delivery records (1941-1944); pharmaceutical and medical supply catalogs, circulars, price lists, and advertisements; and several printed works on anatomy, first aid, and childbirth. Other materials include lecture notes from medical courses, 1879 and 1936; correspondence from James P. Jones to Elizabeth (his wife), 1937-1938; other family letters, including letters from William Notley Jones to A. P Jones; and several photographs of family members, homes, and medical offices. The collection also includes a series of vinyl recordings on cardiac auscultation.
