MS042 Solis-Cohen Family Collection 1838-1960 113 Linear Feet (282 Boxes)
Jacob Da Silva, Solomon, and Myer Solis-Cohen were all physicians. Jacob received his MD from the University of Pennsylvania in 1860, Solomon from Jefferson Medical College in 1883, and Myer from the University of Pennsylvania in 1900. During their careers, both Jacob and Solomon served on the faculty at Jefferson. Myer was primarily associated with the University of Pennsylvania, the Jewish Hospital, and the Women's Medical College. Myer's wife, Rosebud worked as a research analyst with the US Department of Justice.
The majority of the items document the medical specialties, clinical research, and publications of Jacob, Solomon and Myer. This includes materials relating to Jacob's work in laryngology, Solomon's in pharmo-therapeutics, and Myer's work with infectious diseases (particularly tuberculosis, vaccine therapy, pathogen selective cultures), as well as women's and family health. In addition, the collection documents the family's interest and research into their history and genealogy - primarily undertaken by Myer and his wife Rosebud. Also noteworthy are the papers of Rosebud documenting her education, family relationships, and her work as a research analyst in the research unit of Immigration and Naturalization Services at the Department of Justice in Philadelphia.
