The core of this series is Frederick C. Blodi's English translation of Julius Hirschberg's monumental Geschichte der Augenheilkunde, first published in German between 1899-1918. The series also includes translations of Robert F. Heitz's research on the history of contact lenses. Dr. Blanchard contributed to the translation of volume11-3D in the series, Ophthalmology in the German Speaking Countries in the 20th Century.
Last May, Dr. Blanchard donated a set of the supplemental series, History of Opthalmology - The Monographs. Through Dr. Blanchard's donations, HC&A is now able to offer access to complete sets of these resources in one location.
