Just in time for the de-installation of the physical display, the web component of our most recent exhibit has been mounted:
Röntgen Rays, Harnessed to Heal: Early Radiography and Radiation Medicine in Portland
Delayed by the web update moratorium, the new online exhibit reproduces the text of the printed brochure and shares much of the background information--if not all the artifacts and images--with those of you unable to visit Marquam Hill in person.
A reminder that the presentation on the history of radiation medicine in Oregon, delivered by Kenneth R. Stevens, Jr., MD, in January, is available as a streaming video on our History of Medicine Society Lecture Series page.
Also, a note: our next exhibit, showcasing the artifacts in the Kenneth C. Swan Papers, has been postponed due to the growth of an aggressive leak near the display area on the third floor of the Main Library. Stay tuned for more information about a resolution to the problem and a planned opening date. In the meantime, you can enjoy the (sort of) Velvet Swan on the main exhibits page.
