A piece of history

Today, we welcome into the History of Medicine Room a new artifact of university heritage: the desk of Dean David W.E. Baird will replace the desk currently assigned to the Head of Historical Collections & Archives. While we eagerly await the movers, possessions in piles, we share with you some photos of the man and his desk:

Sept. 16, 1949: Dr. Baird's office on day of moving into Administration Building (later renamed after him as Baird Hall). Left-right: "man from Business Equipment Bureau," Dr. Baird, Bill Zimmerman.

KPTV filming, April 1963. Left-right: Thelma Wilson, MaryAnn Ademino Lockwood, Hal Lesser (KPTV), Ed Arndt (KPTV), Dr. Baird.

The shirt worn by "man from Business Equipment Bureau" is classic. Hope you like your new desk.
