Between 1900 and 1902, Dr. Farrar completed an internship at Sheppard and Enoch Pratt Hospital in Maryland. Then, after post-graduate training in Europe, he returned to the Hospital in 1904 to become Assistant Physician and Director of Laboratories. At the same time, he was also made Associate Professor in Psychiatry at the Johns Hopkins Medical School. He remained in these joint positions until 1913.

This series documents Dr. Farrar’s activities at Sheppard and Enoch Pratt Hospital and Johns Hopkins Medical School. The records have been divided into three sub-series to reflect Dr. Farrar’s administrative, teaching and clinical functions. An additional fourth series consists of photographs.
