First edition. In 1814, Columbia University Medical School merged into the College of Physicians and Surgeons, a move that was made in an attempt to stymie what was then seen as a period of decline for the medical school. By the date of this report, there was widespread feuding between professors and trustees. The Regents appointed a committee to visit the College and to make a report to the legislature on means of correcting the situation. This is their report! OCLC locates 2 copies (Library of Congress and New York Academy of Medicine).
