Transplantation turns fifty
In the category of "History is what happens every day," we're happy to showcase a recent donation of materials from the fiftieth anniversary of organ transplantation at OHSU. The year-long celebration kicked off May 9, 2009, with the Heart Transplantation Celebration at the Oregon Convention Center. The event program, flyers, and menus were deposited in the archives, along with a wealth of digital photos from the party. Materials from additional celebrations will be deposited as the events unfold--an archivist's dream! Our thanks to Michelle Bechtholdt in Liver Transplantation for being so historically minded.
