Purchase Collection Card Sets

The Friends of the TMC Library created two note card sets that highlight the history of medicine and those who practiced it. The cards make great gifts for any note-writer who appreciates history of healthcare. Each box of six cards features historic medical images and sells for $10.00 per box.

  • Early Memorial Scenes of Nursing, 1909 through the 1950s: These folded notecards feature nursing students from the Houston area with six different pictures. The inside is blank for your personal message.
  • Memorial Hospital Children at Christmas, 1937: These folded notecards feature a striking image of patients and staff outside the Memorial Hospital Home for Sick and Crippled Children near downtown Houston on Christmas Eve 1937. The inside is blank for your personal message.

These unique cards are great gifts for everyone who appreciates the history of healthcare and nursing in the Houston area. All card images are courtesy of the McGovern Historical Center of the TMC Library.
