Custodial history

Scope and content

This series consists of case history files of patients with mitral stenosis. Like most other patient files of the fonds, almost all of these files contain heart sounds diagrams drawn by Dr. Segall, 6x12" clinical history forms, sections of electrocardiograms attached to dated cards, as well as 4x6" normal heart sounds record forms completed by Dr. Segall which are often accompanied by sections of electrocardiogram readings. Many files also contain correspondence between Dr. Segall and other doctors, medical institutions, and health insurance companies, and occasionally correspondence between Dr. Segall and the patient and/or the patient's family.
