Shadow-boxer

Judge Keith Raines, J.D., donor of the J. Richard Raines Papers (Accession 2008-008), has funded the construction of a custom shadow box for the first roentgen ray tube used in Oregon, just one of the items in the Raines collection. The work was done by Pearl Framing here in Portland. While the photograph below doesn't quite do it justice, you can get a sense of the style of the design. The case has taken up residence in the History of Medicine Room, so stop by the next time you're passing!
