Forty-Sixth Circular of Castleton Medical College, being a Catalogue of the Officers of the College and Class of the Spring Session of 1852, and Announcement of the Autumnal Session of 1852.


Description of the Spring 1852 course of medical lectures and classes held at Casleton Medical College, the first medical school in Vermont.

The Circular includes a list of faculty, students and recent graduates, including where they were from, and the names of their preceptors. Rules of membership, fees, expenses and a list of required textbooks in 10 subject areas are described.

Students had access to an “...anatomical museum, containing many dry and wet preparations of the nervous vascular and muscular systems, and of every organ of the human body…,” a complete apparatus for demonstrating chemical principles especially organic chemistry, and a dissecting room.

Interestingly, on the next to last leaf there is a notice of a “Society of Alumni of Castleton Medical College.” Organized in 1843, the society held its semi-annual meetings at the close of the Spring and Fall sessions of lectures.
