A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

Dr. J. Henry Clarke Takes Students On A field Trip

Dr. J. Henry Clarke, professor emeritus from the OHSU School of Dentistry, brought a contingency of his first year students from his History of Dentistry class to view a sampling of artifacts, our copy of the 2nd folio of Velsalius' De Humani Corporis Fabrica, 1955, the Leonardo Da Vinci Corpus of the anatomical studies in the collection of Her Majesty, the Queen, at Windsor Castle, signed editions of G.V. Black monographs, a first edition of the American Journal of Dental Science, along with a few other valuable texts.

This is the first time that we have hosted a group from the School of Dentistry and it was wonderful to see the interest in the historical collections. We hope to do a lot more of this. Thank you Dr. Clarke for bringing the group and thank you to the students who took the time out of their busy schedules. We hope to see you all again.
