Percival Bailey's brain collection


Through our colleagues at Chicago Area Medical Archivists, I discovered this University of Illinois-Chicago's digital collection of brain speciments collected by Percival Bailey.


Percival Bailey (1892-1973) made important contributions to the fields of neurosurgery, neuropathology, and psychiatry, among other fields. He is noted for his investigations with Harvey Cushing, which led to the 1926 publication of A Classification of the Tumors of the Glioma Group on a Histogenetic Basis with a Correlated Study of Prognosis. We have several other publications by Bailey in both HC&A and the main library collections.
