Smith Ely Jelliffe City Hospital cases


Notebook of neurological cases seen by Smith Ely Jelliffe at New York's City Hospital, located on Blackwell's Island (now Roosevelt Island), 1906-1907. Information on each case varies but always includes name, sex, and age and often includes residence, ethnicity, and occupation. The patients' symptoms and past history are usually included, but diagnoses and outcomes are less commonly noted. For those cases that do include a diagnosis, epilepsy and multiple sclerosis seem to be the most prevalent illnesses.
