The list of publications below were based on the search in PubMed. They were mostly letters from Benjamin Rush himself. The search method behind the results found on PubMed was searching "Rush B[Author]" and narrowing down the search by publication date. After narrowing the dates from 1745 to 1813, 9 publications were found!
Follow this link to see the first available scans of Rush’s lecture notes from his courses at the University of Pennsylvania, where he taught the first 3000 physicians trained in the US! These are part of the groundbreaking “For the Health of the New Nation” project, which is digitizing early medical documents from Philadelphia institutions. These are from the Library Company of Philadelphia, where the main Benjamin Rush papers are held: over 20,000 pages of notes from 241 bound volumes have been scanned by the Kislak Center for Special Collections at Penn.
The digitization of this material is funded by the Council on Library and Information Resources.
