Abstract

The papers of Dr. Francis P. Corrigan, which include: General Correspondence; Family Correspondence; Subject Files; Speech and Article Files; Financial Files; and Printed Materials.

Scope and Contents of the Materials

Dr. Corrigan was an international ambassador for the American medical community  long before he received his 1934 appointment from FDR to become Ambassador to El Salvador.  This 34 box collection focuses on his diplomatic years and later career as an expert on South America during the formative years of the U.N. World Health Organization. Much of this may be observed in Series 3. As mentioned in the biographic note,  Corrigan undertook two extended trips in the early 1920's under the auspices of the Amercan College of Surgeons which raised awareness of medical conditions in the Americas and brought him a greater degree of recognition. The Printed Material in Series 6 has several files on malaria. This collection is likely to appeal to scholars in Latin American Studies, International Relations and those interested in the history of medicine.

Collection Historical Note

Born in Cleveland, Ohio, on July 14, 1881, Francis Patrick Corrigan was graduated from Adelbert College in 1903, received an M.D. from Western Reserve University in 1906, and did advanced medical study in Vienna in 1910. Specializing in surgery, Dr. Corrigan became chief surgeon of the Chile Exploration Hospital in 1917, and did organization work for the American College of Suregons in South America (1920-1922).  President Roosevelt appointed him Minister to El Salvador in 1934, to Panama in 1937, and Ambassador to Venezuela in 1939, a post he held until 1947.  He was a United States delegate to the first World Health Organization meeting in 1948, and a member of the United States delegation to the United Nations in 1948 and 1949.
