Sixty years of presentation technology

This morning's visit from Dr. Charles Grossman brought us a nearly complete set of presentation technologies from the 1940s to the present: glass lantern slides (talk on C14 glycine), 35 mm slides (cancer and hypothyroidism), 3 x 5 floppy ("Multiple cancers"--not sure yet what software), and DVD with PowerPoint (Hanford). We're on the watch for Dr. Grossman's latest publication to hit the electronic presses of the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society so that we can add PDF to the mix. We are lucky enough to have the equipment to view all of these lectures--and print them out onto paper when necessary.

His visit also brought us a charming booklet of housestaff photographs from New Haven Hospital, 1944, including this shot of the young Dr. Grossman "doing something with a burette."

The booklet has photos of the following staff:
