Abstract

Moses Lewis Linton served at Saint Louis University’s School of Medicine for nearly 30 years. There he met Father Jesuit Peter J. De Smet, priest and missionary to Native Americans, and the two became close friends. After Linton received an album as a Christmas gift from a patient in 1850, De Smet began his work on it as a personal scrapbook for his friend.
