Dean Richard B. Dillehunt’s Photo Album

This image was scanned from the Richard B. Dillehunt Photograph Album, held in OHSU Historical Collections & Archives, Accession No. 2004-001, page 7. The photo album in general contains a wide variety of scenes from the history of OHSU during the time of Richard Dillehunt. The first page contains the text:

“Presented to Dean Richard B. Dillehunt with Love and Best Wishes for a speedy recovery – From – The Faculty and Employees of the Medical School – July 13, 1927”

Page 7 contains 3 photographs; the central one is of the Reference and Periodicals room at the library located in Mackenzie Hall. Flanking the central photograph are smaller images, one of “Miss Hallam” and one of “Mrs Notson.”

Bertha Hallam was the first Library Director from 1919 – 1965, and if you are interested there is an excellent painted portrait of Bertha hanging in the History of Medicine Room in the Old Library Building.

No details regarding Mrs Notson were found.

Dr. Richard B. Dillehunt was the third dean of the Medical School and Chief Surgeon of the Shriner’s Hospital for Crippled Children for 19 years
