The Medical Society of South Carolina Digital Collection includes the minutes of the Society for the years 1789-1986, as well as portraits of past presidents. Minutes for the years 1789-1924 are handwritten; 1925-1986 are typed. Minutes through 1945 are in bound volumes; 1946-1986 are loose-leaf. The bound volumes are presented here as complete volumes, while the loose-leaf minutes are presented by individual year.
The minutes of the MSSC have been fully transcribed so that they are full-text searchable. To view the transcript of a page, select the "page & transcript" option from the "View" menu that appears to the left of the image. These typed transcripts will be particularly helpful for years where the original minutes are handwritten (1789-1924).
In keeping with transcription standards, the minutes were transcribed exactly as written. This means that spelling and punctuation errors made in the original minutes have not been corrected in the transcripts. This may affect search results.
Please note that medical and other terminology may differ from the terminology we currently use. For example, "scarlatina" and "variola" are more commonly used in the older minutes than "scarlet fever" or "small pox."
