Faculty wives: not just auxiliary
Newly available in the OHSU Digital Resources Library are images from the Harry J. Sears Glass Lantern Slide Collection (Accession 2006-011).
Assembled in 1950 for a talk given by Sears to the Faculty Wives Auxiliary (see Accession 1997-006), the twenty photographs show medical school faculty and campus scenes, and illustrate the ties that bound the small, close-knit community. Central to this particular collection of images are the wives themselves and the children they raised. Plus, a fish haul to rival many a Pacific Northwest tale!
