Summary
This collection includes one folder with a few documents and three account books of costs for Dr. Ruddell's professional services. Folder 1 contains a hand-written legal document regarding the sale of property executed on August 21, 1865, between Ambrose G. Ruddell and Asher C. Brunson. There is also an undated, torn letter on Philadelphia University letterhead from L. Fairbanks to Dr. Ruddell which states: "I am informed [that] you are a practicing physician, but have not graduate[d]. Allow me to ask you whether you intend ever to attend lectures? Would it not be to your advantage to graduate? I can make very favorable arrangements with you, an[d] enclose our announcement for your perusal. Perhaps with your experience and qualifications, a part of the course may be dispensed with." A land contract signed by President Zachary Taylor is also in folder 1
