Dr. Bernard Illievitz Fonds

  • CA JPL-A 1125
  • Fonds
  • 1896 - 1960

The fonds contains materials that attest to Dr. Abraham Bernard Illievitz's medical education and career as a doctor and philanthropist.

A large scrapbook contains a substantial amount of correspondence pertaining to Dr. Illievitz's medical education (primarily at McGill University), practice, and inventions, and generally illustrates his philanthropic/professional affiliation with numerous medical institutions; likewise, many pages of medical publication reviews authored by Dr. Illievitz are present.

Certificates acknowledging Dr. Illievtiz's academic achievement and involvement in various medical societies and institutions, both in the United States and in Canada, can be found in the fonds. Photographs of notable musicians and performers dedicated to Dr. Illievitz (mostly in gratitude for his medical service) are also included, as well as photocopies of pertinent textual records and photographs of which the fonds does not contain originals.

Finally, two versions (one hand-written featuring hand-drawn illustrations, the other typed with photographs pasted in as place-holders) of Illievitz's manuscript Israel & Medicine can be found in the fonds. These manuscripts contain some edits and marginalia, as well as mini biographies of key doctors and dates in medical history; the two manuscripts in conjunction aptly demonstrate the evolution of the research project.
