Richard N. MacBain, D.O. Collection, 1924-1974

Dr. Richard N. MacBain, working with Dr. Floyd Peckham, pushed through a state law that passed in 1955 giving full medical license privileges to osteopathic physicians. Dr. MacBain realized that osteopathic physicians would never get full rights without a strong background in the basic sciences and spent part of his career building the basic sciences program at the Chicago College of Osteopathy. The MacBain Collection contains certificates, awards and personal items that Dr. MacBain acquired during his lifetime.
