A passel of year-end additions

Several new (old) works are now rubbing shoulders with the established denizens of the historical book shelves here at OHSU. The books strengthen our holdings in neurology, cardiology, and military medicine and provide unique copies of these classic titles for researchers in the Orbis Cascade Alliance of Oregon and Washington.

The list of additions is below; links will take you out to resources with more information on the individual authors (some big names here!). The last of the receipts will soon be cataloged and available for consultation. In the interim, we're happy to answer questions about any or all. Enjoy!
