About this collection

The Aesculapian Medical Society was established in 1903. African American physicians, dentists, and pharmacists originally banded together in Indianapolis around the turn of the 20th century when the Marion County Medical Society refused admission to blacks. The society shared professional information and established group cohesion and recognition. Members pushed for the admittance of African American doctors and patients into local hospitals, meeting with success in 1953.
