Norris, George William, 1875-1965
Extent: 0.8 linear feet (3 boxes)
George William Norris (1975-1963) was a professor of clinical medicine at the University of Pennsylvania and chief of Medical Service at the Pennsylvania Hospital.

The scrapbooks also contain background information about Norris’ family and one scrapbook is filled with some of George Norris’ correspondence, certificates of membership to philanthropic and academic societies, and other papers.
