The William Osler Collection was organized and cataloged by Harold Kanarek in 1983. Funding to process the William Osler Collection was provided by a grant from the NIH National Library of Medicine (LM 03594). Since 1983, the Medical Archives has received additional Osler materials which have been added to the collection. Beginning in 2008, under the direction of Phoebe Evans Letocha, the Medical Archives began to convert the 1983 finding aid to a web-based finding aid. Medical Archives student assistant Emma Graf converted the unpublished collection inventory to the catalog. In 2012, Medical Archives volunteer Dr. Francis Milligan began processing the addendum to the Osler Collection and reviewing the original inventory for more accurate description. Medical Archives student assistants Liana Sanders and Bengucan Gunen assisted with the processing. In 2016-2017, student assistants Connie Scozzaro and Joseph Wallace reprocessed Series 4 Collected Notes on Medical Conditions. Visual Materials Archivist Tim Wisniewski has digitized the Photographs series.
