F. L. Pleadwell was an American naval medical officer, editor, and autograph collector.
The collection consists, for the most part, of letters received by Pleadwell and his wife, the former Laura Mell Stith, including letters by Roy M. Saunders, Thomas Shattuck, and Herbert F. West, concerning Pleadwell's collection of autographs and books in the literary and historical fields. The collection also contains an autograph album of letters, poems, photographs, and clippings of prominent associates in the medical profession, such as Joseph W. Courtney, Harvey Cushing, Sir William Osler, and Henry E. Sigerist; a photograph of Edwin J. Beinecke, a collector of Robert Louis Stevenson's works; two articles by Pleadwell, "Byron and the American Navy" and "Byron and His Americans"; a portrait of Pleadwell; and letters to his wife after his death and her remarriage to William C. Moore, including correspondence with Parke-Bernet regarding the sale of Pleadwell's collections.
Arranged in two alphabetical groups with a checklist for the second group.
