History of Medicine in Oregon Project web site

Regular readers might remember that OHSU Historical Collections & Archives is a partner in the history of medicine in Oregon documentary project of the Oregon Medical Education Foundation. Well, information about the project has now been added to the OMEF section of the Oregon Medical Association web site at http://www.theoma.org/hom.

Currently illustrated with photos of first (and 50th) OMA president A.C. Kinney, M.D., second project chair, Roy A. Payne, M.D., and project supporter Ralph Crawshaw, M.D., the page will soon link to an article describing the project in more detail and a short demo of the interviews conducted to date. In the meantime, you can see the demo video on the OHSU Digital Resources Library here (yes, due to a software feature, the link is labeled "Open PDF File"--but it's a video, trust us).

A list of interviews conducted by the project as of September 2008 was posted here at that time. Most recently, Sister Monica Heeran and Donald H. Hill, MD, sat down with the crew in Eugene to discuss the history of medicine in Lane County. And of course, all relevant interviews conducted as part of the OHSU Oral History Program are also being made available to the project.
