The library of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has a very large 
collection of medicinal history in addition to all of the current medical 
research.  My aunt is a reference librarian there, and researchers of all 
types are always welcomed.  If you are not close to Bethesda, then a phone 
call to the reference desk might get you started with a good bibliography of 
sources.  I do not have the number off hand, but it should be available from 
the main operators at NIH.  Also, I do believe that there catalog is 
available online.  I know there was a telnet version several years ago, but I 
think there is a web version by now too.

Good luck,
