Overview and metadata sections
Reuben Friedman (1892-1956) was a professor of clinical dermatology at Temple University School of Medicine and the author of several volumes on scabies and A History of Dermatology in Philadelphia. John B. Roxby (1872-1957) was probably a dermatologist.
The collection contains notes, slides, and other materials that belonged to Reuben Friedman and John B. Roxby. Glass slides relate to lectures on dermatology, particularly scabies; they include images of patients, microscopic view of organisms, and text, such as quotes from Italian sources. The collection also includes college class and clinic notes of Reuben Friedman and John B. Roxby. There are several published volumes by Friedman, as well as a framed certificate, poem, and photograph.
