“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

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.
