Description

The use of admission tickets for each course of a medical student's education was common until the late 19th century. Students paid the professor or lecturer directly and were then issued these passes for an academic session. Robert Thaxter (1776-1852) received a bachelor of medicine degree from Harvard in 1802; the doctor of medicine was conferred upon him in 1811.
