Description

Editor H. Doesburg reported in De Hollander on this date that Dr. Bernardus Ledeboer has agreed conditionally to move his medical practice from Grand Rapids to Holland. The doctor is a "practicing internal physician, surgeon and obstetrician." The doctor was in town for a few days to view the situation. A subscription list was set up to encourage the doctor to come. Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte's name headed the list with a gift of a building lot. About sixty other people signed the list assuring the doctor of a good practice.

About the collection:

Elton J. Bruins, long-time professor in the Department of Religion at Hope College, spent years collecting documents by and about Albertus C. Van Raalte, founder of Holland, Michigan and early patron of Hope College. Documents were gathered from dozens of public and private collections, making a nearly exhaustive collection of Van Raalte's writings and reflections. It is these documents that make up the "Van Raalte Papers."
