Name of creator
Louis A. George Jacques was born in 1847. He graduated with a medical degree from University of Montreal in 1873 and began practicing as an allopathic physician and surgeon in Montreal towards the end of the 19th century. He is listed in Lovell's Montreal Directory as keeping a practice at 160 Amherst Street in the 1880s and later 220 Amherst in the 1890s.
He died August 1915 and was buried at Notre-Dame-des-Neiges. After his death, it seems his brother V. G. Jacques inherited his practice.
Acquired by the Osler Library in September 2010.
Scope and content
The fonds contains Dr. Jacques' journal of medical accounts receivable entered in an account book issued with blank pages and bound in half suede with green cloth boards. The account book was kept between November 1879 and January 1881. A title handwritten on a paper label on the cover reads "Journal pour 1879-1880-1881." The author's full name comes from within the journal (L. A. George Jacques, M. D.) and from Lovell's Montreal directory for 1881-1882 (Louis A. George Jacques, M. D.). Laid in at p. 207 is an ink blotter featuring pharmaceutical advertising for Glyco-Heroin (Smith).
