More opthalmology collections!
May and June have turned out to be big months for ophthalmalogy-related research and collection development in HC&A. I already mentioned the donation of books from the History of Ophthalmology - The Monographs series. Last month, we also began receiving donations of papers of Earl Palmer, M.D., a leading researcher in the retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). Karen is working with Casey Eye Institute staff to transfer additional materials to the archives, just as her assistant Jeff is completing processing of the papers of Kenneth C. Swan, M.D.
The 20th anniversary of the Casey Eye Institute building is also coming up, and I've been delighted to help round up photos and factoids to mark the occasion. Materials in HC&A related to CEI include photographs, publications, faculty papers, and administrative records. A short history of the institute is available on the CEI Website.
