Alexander Anderson (1775-1870) was a New York engraver and physician. His papers consist of 38 letters to Anderson from his mother while he was serving as a physician at Bellevue Hospital during the yellow fever epidemic in 1795, a letter from his father to his mother, circa 1775, and two of his notebooks, one containing a chronological list of Roman emperors, the other his notes on botany, nosology, and stenography, 1795. In addition, the collection contains Evert A. Duyckinck's papers on Anderson, including reminiscences, transcripts from Anderson's diaries, and letters from Benson J. Lossing concerning the invitation he received to deliver a memorial of Anderson at the New-York Historical Society.
Digitization was made possible by a lead gift from The Polonsky Foundation.
