This Maryland physician was a noted scholar in the Civil War medicine field, co-authoring with wife Janet C. Stark the slim 1958 study "Surgical Care of the Confederate States Army" (1958) and many other scholarly pieces. Untitled typescript, 3pp (rectos only), 8½" X 11", n.p., n.y. Near fine. Original typescript of an article regarding the Medical Corps of the Confederate States, boldly inscribed and signed by him in black ink at top of first page: "Dear Arnold, Thank you for your nice / note and comments. Hope this will do. / Dick / Stark." Undated, but certainly of late 1950s vintage. Arnold F. Gates (1914-93) was a noted Lincoln and Civil War scholar and long-time officer of the New York Civil War Round Table. He makes a few small pencilled editorial additions, which suggest this article was prepared for a newsletter issued by the New York group. Accompanied by an announcement of a program sponsored by the Medical Society of the State of New York at their 154th annual convention, 1p, 8½" X 11", New York, NY, 1960 May 13. Near fine. Printed on this organization's letterhead, this typed program lists the speakers for this one-day symposium about Civil War medicine. At dead center, Stark boldly pens, "Chairman: Dr. Richard B. Stark," and along the top edge and running down the right margin he adds: "Mr. Arnold Gates / Dear Arnold, / Could you announce this at / the / next / C.W.R.T. / meeting. / Thank you / very / much, / Dick Stark." An intriguing pair. N° de ref. de la librería 40531
