Dr. Blinder was born in Russia and emigrated to the United States in 1908. He graduated from Bellevue Medical College (New York University) in 1911. He established a family medical practice in 1915 in Brooklyn, New York, which he continued for forty- eight years, except for an interruption for U.S. Army service during World War I.
The collection consists of Blinder's bound medical notebooks, class notes, lab notes, and miscellaneous papers from his medical studies at Bellevue College, New York University (1908-1911). In one instance, a notebook was written by another student, Jacob Hirschkowitz. Most of the notebooks contain drawings as well as loose handouts from professors, Dr. Brooks and Dr. Smith. The notebooks cover the following topics: pharmacology, anatomy, obstetrics, physiology, chemistry, and pathology.
