The collection consists of 20 volumes and ten folders of lecture notes and supporting materials from Wurzbach's time at Columbia College and the Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons (P&S), 1915-1918. It appears Wurzbach was taking classes at P&S while still enrolled in Columbia College.
Volumes 1-19, 22 are bound lecture notes, 1915-1917. The 3 unbound volumes (designated as v. 20-21, 23) consist of .25 linear feet. The bulk of the material is class and study notes, along with examinations, handouts, case histories, a lab book, experimental data, forms and schedules. Also included are forms and patient instructions from Bellevue and Presbyterian Hospitals and the Vanderbilt Clinic, and various reprints from the professional literature.
Wurzbach generally did not identify the lecturer in his notes. One exception is volume 22 which consists of notes of the physiological chemistry lectures of Professor William J. Gies, Sept. 1915-Feb. 1916.
