Series 2: Memoranda Books [series]:

This series consists of eighteen small memoranda books filled with Garrison's personal and hasty jottings from day to day on a wide variety of subjects. Most entries are written in pencil. Some of the material is on medical history. Much of it is quotations, in several languages, from books and articles which he read. There is no order of any kind. While the covers of the books date from 1899 to 1917, it is impossible on first reading to tell when Garrison entered the notes. One volume appears to be from the Manila period, and the others may date from his time in Baltimore. The material was purchased in 1953 from a New York bookstore. A letter from Jefferson R. Kean found in one of the volumes is included with the correspondence in the next series.
