    Where are Middleton Goldsmith Papers?

    Val Summers Newbie

      I have several citations for the Middleton Goldsmith Papers at NARA but can't find anything about him on the NARA website. He was a Civil War surgeon, stationed in Louisville, who is credited with the discovery of bromide/bromine  to cure/prevent  hospital gangrene--long before Joseph Lister advocated the use of antiseptics for surgery.

       

      I would appreciate knowing how to access the papers.
