Dr. Salim Atiyyeh, a family friend, 1800s

According to my friend, Chucri Hajjar, Dr. Atiyyeh was among the first class of graduates of the American University of Beirut's School of Medicine circa 1872. His medical degree was done on deer skin. Incidentally, one of his classmates was Dr. Yousef Hajjar brother of Jiris, Bechara, Chucri, Skandar...etc Hajjar whose photographs appear on these pages.

NOTE: At the top right side of the photograph is the moving poem written by this fine gentleman on the back of his photograph. My rough translation in English is at the bottom.
