Journal of John Scott Willock found

Below is the text of a email I received concerning this journal. This man was born about 1877 and lived until after 1930, possibly after 1942. He was a physician. The book store wants about $10 for it plus 3.75 for shipping. I plan to buy the book unless a direct ancestor would find it to be a treasure.

Original message.

My name is Jacob Joseph, and I work for a bookstore in Baltimore, MD. Our trade consists mostly of used, rare, and out-of-print books. I came across a leather-bound journal with the signature of one, J. Scott Willock whom I believe to have been a prominent doctor in the Baltimore area during the early 1900s. The journal is beautiful and
contains about 70 pages with entries, the first half of which appear to be bookkeeping entries and the second half of which are journals. If you have any contact information for genealogists in the Baltimore area who research the Willock family please let me know. We would normally list this on our usual channels, but my mother is a genealogist herself, and I know how much a family historian would love to have something like this.
