It is most appropriate that the history of nephrology collection in the Eskind Biomedical Library of the Vanderbilt University Medical Center be named "The Roscoe R. Robinson Collection in the History of Nephrology." Dr. Robinson is trained in nephrology and has made many contributions to this field both directly and indirectly.
The Roscoe R. Robinson Collection in the History of Nephrology spans a wide spectrum of titles. At this time it numbers 200 titles. Among the most valuable portions of the collection are the titles relating to Dr. Richard Bright (1789-1858). The site includes a complete list of the titles in the collection including a few images of frontispieces, a brief biography of Richard Bright and bibliographies of books by and about Bright. The site is in frames that permit easy navigation.
