TitlePapers relating to work by Smith and colleagues in the Army Veterinary Service 1868-1899
Extent3 boxes
DescriptionThese papers cover work carried out by Smith as an Army Veterinarian in various locations during his time in military service. The forms, manuscript notes, sketches and paintings were all created to record the illness and ailments of the horses treated by Smith and his colleagues. It seems that these notes were initially kept in notebooks, in a roughly chronological order, but that Smith later sorted them into separate categories. Annotations by Smith in blue crayon suggest that these were used to provide strong examples of cases for his later writing. Some of the cases are grouped together by area of anatomy, or particular disease. These folders have been maintained, and divided into two subseries: anatomy and pathology. Some of the papers have been unsorted by Smith, or separated for unclear reasons, and those these make up a third subseries. Some of the folder titles have Roman numerals in them, but this does not appear to relate to the chapter numbers in Smith’s publications.
Smith carried out a thorough sorting of his papers in 1927, and annotations made at this time are clearly dated for that year.
