Naturopath Herbert Shelton published more than 35 books in the fields of vegetarianism and alternative medicine and founded, in 1939, a monthly journal, Dr. Shelton’s Hygienic Review. He was also an avid collector of books and magazines in the fields of nutrition and alternative medicine. For some years after his death, Dr. Shelton’s collection resided at the home offices of the National Health Association, formerly called the American Natural Hygiene Society, in Tampa, Florida. In 2002 it was donated to The University of Texas at Austin.
