Trunkey Rare Book Collection added to catalog
Thanks to a generous donation from Dr. Donald Trunkey, M.D. and strong support from the OHSU Dept. of Surgery, over 150 classics in surgery are newly available to researchers at OHSU.
The books in the Dept. of Surgery's Trunkey Rare Book Collection are now listed in the OHSU Library catalog online and are available to scholars for on-campus use through either the department or Historical Collections & Archives. The collection includes many classics in surgery that were previously unavailable at OHSU, including Harvey Cushing's Surgery of the head and Alfred Blalock's Principles of surgical care.
Questions about the collection and its contents can be addressed to us here at homref[at]ohsu.edu.
