New archival acquisitions

The past two weeks have brought some important new archival material to HC&A:

From the OHSU School of Dentistry, we've received much-needed issues of the Caementum newsletter, an invaluable source of information about the school. Many thanks to Sydney Clevenger, SOD communications guru, for making this transfer happen!

Another dentistry-related acquisition is the papers of Robert L. Anderson, D.M.D. Dr. Anderson was an alumnus of the dental school and practiced in Portland. He had a passion for art and culture, and was an artist himself: The collection includes his original artwork for illustrations in Merrill Swenson and Louis Terkla's Partial Dentures.

And just this week we recieved an initial donation of papers from Earl L. Palmer, M.D. Dr. Palmer is a leading researcher in retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). He is contributing correspondence, slides, and publications from national research projects in this field.
