Archives in action!

Yesterday afternoon, Dr. Donald Blanchard brought us several boxes of material from the Casey Eye Institute, including additions to the Kenneth Swan Papers and records of CEI. Karen and Jeff have already started sorting through the material to get it rehoused and accessioned. I thought the volume and variety of material were a great representation of the array of "stuff" we handle in HC&A, so I took some pictures:

Above: Films, videos, papers and artifacts from Kenneth Swan and the Casey Eye Institute

Above: Classic books on optics and ophthalmology, waiting for me to review for the History of Medicine Collection and PNW Collection.
