Administrative/Biographical history:

Dr Forrest Loveland, general practitioner, was born in 1885. He graduated from Creighton University School of Medicine, Omaha, Nebraska in 1911, and was licensed to practise in 1912. In 1965 the American Medical Directory listed him as a general practitioner in Topeka, Kansas, with a secondary specialism in occupational medicine.


Scope and content/abstract:

Journal by Dr Forrest Leon Loveland, general practitioner, Topeka, Kansas, documenting a trip he made to Europe with his wife Helen, 29 Jul 1931-23 Dec 1931. The journal describes the pair's travels through England, Holland, Belgium, France, Germany, Switzerland, Hungary and, in particular, Austria and Italy. The main focus of the trip was Vienna, Austria, where the Lovelands stayed from 29 Aug to 27 Nov 1931. Immediately on arrival Dr Loveland joined the American Medical Association of Vienna and began attending medical classes at Vienna University, including Dr Hermann Chiari's pathology class. Numerous photographs, postcards, tickets, newscuttings, maps, souvenirs etc. are pasted into the volume, and loose items were inserted between the pages up to 1949.
