The Texas Physicians Database consists of citations to biographical information related to early Texas physicians from the Texas State Journal of Medicine for 1905-1966. Most of these are one-line death notices, rather than extensive obituaries, and so they were not indexed in standard sources such as Index Medicus. Additional citations from other sources range in date from the 1870's to 1966, and include early Texas medical journals such as the Texas Courier-Record of Medicine, Polk's Directories, Texas newspapers and assorted histories of Texas.

The database consists of citations and does not include the full text of the biographical material. Each citation includes an OCLC number. Your local library's interlibrary loan department can use this number to locate which libraries actually own the primary source. Most records also include the year of birth or death, but not the entire birth or death date. The database is searchable by last name only or by last name and first initial. Some physicians are also searchable by the city in which they primarily practiced. You can also browse from an alphabetical index of last names. Please feel free to provide a link to this database from your own Web site. The project was funded by Texas Treasures grants.
