Description

Edward Warren wrote two volumes about John Collins Warren I. The books gather J. C. Warren's Domestic and European journals, Letters from Europe, "Biographical Notes," and "Surgical Notes." The second volume has an entry dated March 3, 1853, where Warren discusses the potential purchase of Morton's crania collection after his death. Dr. Kneeland is sent to Philadelphia with $2,000 from a Mr. Barnard - both members of the Boston Society of Natural-History. At this point, there had been uncertainty with where the Morton crania collection would be located. The curator, Joseph Leidy, at the Academy of Natural Sciences (ANSP) declined the responsibility of the 918 cranias collected by Morton. Simultaneously, men considered "Subscribers of Dr. Morton's Anatomical Collection" and associated to ANSP raised money for the procurement of the collection.
