Physical condition

Immediate source of acquisition

The papers of Dr. Barrowman were acquired from Dr. John Crellin, John Clinch Professor of Medical History at Memorial University in September of 1999. The papers had been stored in the Dr. Kenneth B Roberts Historical Collection prior to their move to the archive.


When the papers of Dr. James Barrowman arrived at the Faculty of Medicine Founders’ Archive, there was no degree of order present. A small number of files were labelled with original titles but photographs and correspondence were scattered throughout the collection. These characteristics formed the framework for further arrangement and description.
