Addie W. Clarkson Collection

 Collection — Multiple Containers
Identifier: WHC-M-911
Scope and Contents


Physician. Account ledgers (1908) from Clarkson’s medical practice at the Wheelock Academy in Millerton, Oklahoma, and at Valliant, Oklahoma. The collection also includes class notes (1926) by his son, A. M. Clarkson, while a student at the University of Oklahoma. Addie W. Clarkson Photograph Collection also in repository.

His ledgers, consisting of (1) a patients' account ledger, begun in 1908, and (2) an expense ledger, begun in 1952, show that, like many a humanitarian "horse and buggy" doctor, he kept a heterogeneous system of accounts and of payments in and for produce and labor, and did not press for full collections. These ledgers are a source of information of commodity and labor prices, and of medical charges.
