A second bibliography is arranged chronologically and lists articles published between 1832 and 1937. The articles, most dating from the last quarter of the nineteenth century, include such local medical topics as meeting transactions of the East Tennessee Medical Society, an article on the history of surgery in Tennessee, and the state of cholera in Knoxville in 1873.

Biographical/Historical Note

The Knoxville Academy of Medicine was founded in 1853 by the pioneer physicians of Knox County. It followed the creation of a state medical association in 1830 and a regional medical association in 1845. In 1853, local chapters were encouraged to form and by 1856 the state legislature gave power to the Knoxville Medical Society. In 1857, Otis F. Hill, MD became the first president of the Knoxville Medical Society, which would later take the name the Knoxville Academy of Medicine.
