J. Lawrence Pool papers

Abstract: 

The Pool papers include biographical and genealogical records; his World World II military records; a memoir; photographs; diplomas and certificates; and printed material. There is only one folder of correspondence which contains letters from such prominent medical figures as Stanley Cobb, Wilder Penfield, Frederick Tilney, and John F. Fulton. Of particular interest are Pool's memoir, written in 2001; and a 1944 notebook of surgical cases from his time with the 9th Evacuation Hospital in the South of France.
