In our ongoing effort to "inform researchers in a timely manner" of new receipts (per the ACRL/SAA Joint Statement on Access to Research Materials in Archives and Special Collections Libraries), we hereby announce that, this morning, we picked up two boxes of records from the office of Robert D. Koler, M.D., Emeritus Professor of medical genetics and former Associate Vice-President of Academic Affairs at OHSU.
Included in the haul (which was literal, since the room I brought them to is not handicapped- or bookcart-accessible) are many of Koler's teaching slides (35mm); chronological files from 1988-89; Principles of Clinical Medicine curricular materials from 2000 and 2002; faculty handbooks and academic procedures manual; affirmative action committee records from 1993; School of Medicine Alumni Council materials from 2001; and a folder labeled "Dillehunt Building Committee" (which will help bring the earlier Story from the Clippings full circle).
Koler received his medical degree at the University of Oregon Medical School in 1955 and went on to intern here and complete a residency in hematology. He succeeded E.E. Osgood as chair of the Division of Hematology and Experimental Medicine in 1964, and founded the Division (now department) of Medical Genetics in 1967. In 1988, he was named Associate Vice-President of Academic Affairs.
An oral history interview conducted with Dr. Koler in 1997 is available in the main library.
