Scope and content

Charles Arnould Hentz (1827-1894) was a physician practicing in the rural South in the years leading up to and through the Civil War. Dr. Hentz is famously known for his diary that he kept for more than twenty years, which depicts the demanding work of a physician in an age before medicine could reliably cure patients. The collection contains a two-volume carbon typescript of his autobiography that he penned at the end of his life. Also included is a pamphlet titled "Le Conventionnel Hentz Depute de la Moselle," translated into English, about Nicolas Hentz, a député of the Moselle to the French National Convention.
