Frederick B. Noyes was born in 1872. He attended Johns Hopkins University and received his B.A in 1893. He continued his studies at Northwestern University receiving the D.D.S. in 1895 and the Sc.D. in 1922. Noyes was professor of Histology and Orthodontia at the University of Illinois beginning in 1921. He served as Dean of the College of Dentistry during the 1930's. In 1898, Noyes co-authored A Quiz Manual of Histology, General and Dental with Charles Bert Reed. In 1912, Noyes wrote A Textbook of Dental Histology and Embryology. Successive editions were published until the 7th edition (1953) which was re-titled Oral Histology and Embryology. In 1941, Noyes received the American Association of Orthodontists Award. He died in 1961.

Scope and Contents

This collection consists of classroom notes written by Frederick B. Noyes while he was an undergraduate student at Johns Hopkins University during the years 1891 to 1893. The notes were taken in separate classes but are bound in one volume. Included are notes from lectures given by Dr. Ira Remsen in Chemistry, February 1892 to May 1892. Also included are notes from a Biology Course, Laboratory Work, October 1891 to December 1892, taught by Drs. Henry Newell Martin, William Keith Brooks, Ethan Allen Andrews, and George Peter Dreyer. Less extensive notes are from a Classics course on Schiller, William Tell which was taught by Dr. Marion Dexter Learned in 1891.

The Chemistry notes describe organic reactions, preparation of compounds and discussions of carbohydrates and acid groups. The Biology notes detail classifications and physiology of various species and include diagrams and drawings. The pages are dated and list the professor's name. The notes appear in the following order: Chemistry with Dr. Ira Remsen, February 1892-May 1892; Biology with Dr. William Keith Brooks, October 1891; Classics with Dr. Marion Dexter Learned, probably October 1891; Biology with Dr. William Keith Brooks, October 1891-March 1892; Biology with Dr. Henry Newell Martin, October 1891; Biology with Dr. Ethan Allen Andrews, November 1891-May 1892; Biology with Dr. Ethan Allen Andrews, November 1892-May 1893; Biology with Dr. George Peter Dreyer, November 1892-December 1892; Biology with Dr. Henry Newell Martin, January 1893-May 1893.

Immediate Source of Acquisition

The manuscript was given as a gift to the Library in 1963 by the Department of Orthodontics, College of Dentistry, University of Illinois. Frederick B. Noyes probably retained possession of his notebooks while he was part of the faculty of the College of Dentistry. Apparently the manuscript remained in the possession of the University of Illinois after Noyes' death in 1961 and was later donated to the Library.
