The Bryant Collection

The Bryant Collection boasts more than a thousand books by physician-writers. The books range from fiction to nonfiction, from the well-known (William Carlos Williams) to the more obscure (Peter Goldsworthy).

The collection is a gift of Daniel C. Bryant, MD, a practicing physician-writer who became interested in the work of his colleagues both living and dead. The collection is intended to inspire and encourage medical students and others to recognize the writer within.

Many of the titles listed by Dr. Bryant are available in Ehrman Medical Library's collection.  Books are available for circulation for up to four weeks at a time. Please visit the library to further explore this collection.
