The Murdina MacFarquhar Desmond, MD Papers contains photographs of Dr. Desmond as a medical student, Naval officer, and a faculty member of Baylor College of Medicine. The main portion of her papers deal with her work at Jefferson Davis Hospital, including grants she received from the John A. Hartford Foundation, and at Texas Children's Hospital.
Some background material and photographs of the illustrations she used in the book, Newborn Medicine and Society: European Background and American Practice (1750-1975), are included. Reprints of her journal articles are also available. She donated many books on the newborn and on pediatrics. These books have been cataloged and are available through The TMC Library's online catalog.
