Organized in 1921, the objectives of the Texas Society of Pathologists have been to bring the pathologists of Texas into one unified organization; to extend both general and pathological knowledge; to promote ethical standards and practice of pathology in Texas; to foster the interests of its members, and protect them against imposition and exploitation; and to cooperate with other state and national organizations of similar aims and purposes.


The records of the Texas Society of Pathologists consist of various documents concerning the Society's first 50 years. Among these are the constitution and bylaws, meeting minutes, executive committee minutes and committee lists.

Administrative Information

The records were given to the Moody Medical Library by Dr. P.R. Gilmer, Jr., the president of the Society, on June 15, 1987.
