Records History
"Margaret Barclay Wilson was born to Alexander and Margaret (Inglis) Wilson in Dunfermline, Scotland, on August 28, 1863. In 1870 she immigrated to the United States with her parents. Wilson graduated from the Normal College (later Hunter College) of the City of New York in 1884. She taught in the New York public schools until 1887, when she began instructing mathematics at the Normal College. She received an M.D. from the Women’s Medical College of New York Infirmary in 1893, an A.B. from Hunter College in 1901, and an M.S. from New York University in 1902. She taught physiology and hygiene at Hunter College from 1893 until her retirement in 1933. She also served as honorary librarian from 1915 to 1927. In 1915, she published the Andrew Carnegie Anthology. Carnegie and Wilson, both natives of Dunfermline, Scotland, were friends.

Wilson avidly collected books on topics that encompassed and extended beyond her study of medicine. Her substantial personal library comprised volumes on cooking, nutrition, ancient and modern history, international politics, anthropology, natural history, and literature. In 1929, she donated the majority of her personal collection of about 5,000 cookbooks, pamphlets, and medicinal recipe books to the library of the New York Academy of Medicine. She was a fellow of the New York Academy of Medicine, as well as the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Geographic Society, and the New York Academy of Science. She belonged to the American Philological Association, the American Classical League, and the Archaeological Institute of America, among other organizations. She was an associate member of the Harvey Society, to which she eventually willed a portion of her estate.

Wilson died on October 6, 1945, in Washington, DC."
