This morning, we’re sending best wishes to our friends at the Duke University Medical Center Archives, who have just entered the blogosphere!
Visit their new blog for stories about the history of the DUMC community; interesting images, artifacts, and documents from their collections (like the illustration at right); and information about their resources, services, news, and events.
Recent posts include:
- a look at the School of Medicine’s yearbook, the Aesculapian
- excellent illustrations from Dr. Malcolm Tyor’s papers, made to accompany a talk given to the American Gastroenterological Association
- a history of Duke’s Surgical Instrument Shop
- a brief essay on Project MED-AID, a radio consultative program offered to isolated doctors in other countries (and one of Duke’s early global health programs)
All illustrated with great finds from the Medical Center Archives’ collections.
Look for new posts every other week! Happy blogging, y’all!
