Scope and Content Note

The collection consists of three ledgers kept by Henry Hicks from 1852-1873. Hick’s first ledger contains lecture notes from courses taken at the Medical College of Georgia, from lectures given by Drs. Louis A. Dugas, Paul F. Eve, and Robert S. Newton. The remainder of the ledger, and the remaining two ledgers, contains patient accounts, listing name of patient, services provided, charges and medicine dispensed. Ledgers also list the mileage Hicks charged as he traveled to visit his patients. Loose papers include a Freedmen list, an IOU, and a list of accounts. These accounts appear to be from an estate sale on December 28, 1843 and list household goods, livestock and names of people who were enslaved.
