George Milbry Gould was born on 8 November 1848. He received an A.B. degree from Ohio Wesleyan University in 1873, and in 1874 graduated from Harvard Divinity School. In 1888 Gould received an M.D. degree from Jefferson Medical College, followed a year later by an A.M. degree from Ohio Wesleyan. In addition to his Philadelphia ophthalmological practice, Gould was an active writer and editor. Among his more notable accomplishments were the compilation of medical dictionaries (continued today by Blackiston's New Gould Medical Dictionary), and his editorship of the Philadelphia Medical Journal, American Medicine, and Medical News. Under Gould's direction the Association of Medical Librarians (later the Medical Library Association) was formed; additional correspondence from Gould can be found in their archives, also in the library.
New Jersey, Maine and New York are the states written on the letters and on the first page of the diaries.
