The Health Sciences Library has recently acquired a manuscript by Samuel Bard (1742-1821), a founder of the Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons and a prominent early American physician.  The 20-page handwritten document is the text of an unpublished commencement address given by Bard to the graduates of the College, probably in about 1818.
