Dr. Stedman R. Tilghman scrapbook


The scrapbook of Dr. Stedman R. Tilghman (1822-1848), containing newspaper clippings on mountain and prairie life, autographs, correspondence, a piece of beaver tail, engravings, and twenty-five pencil, pen, and watercolor sketches. Nineteen of the sketches in this book were done by Richard Caton Woodville (1825-1855), a young artist from Baltimore, Maryland. The Woodville sketches consist of professors and students at the University of Maryland from 1842-1843, doctors and persons at the Baltimore Alms House in 1845, and a sketch of Woodville himself. Woodville originally began a medical career and studied at the University of Maryland during the 1842-1843 session. Tilghman graduated from this medical school in 1843, and left later that year to accompany Sir William Drummond Stewart on his last expedition to the Rocky Mountains. Sketches from that expedition are also in this scrapbook.
