Holiday stories from UOMS students' families, December 1964

Looking through back issues of "What's Going On" (some of my personal favorites for institutional history), I came across a lovely spread in the December 1964 issue of the campus publication highlighting holiday tales from students of the University of Oregon Medical School. 

While there were some of the expected stories of the hardworking intern father and his lovely stay-at-home wife and children (with suitably adorable accompanying photos), I was very pleasantly surprised to see solid representation of female students and medical professionals. So, in honor of finals week, and as you settle in the holiday mood, please enjoy this sweet stories of former UOMS students!

The bacteriologist and the physiology graduate student...
The senior medical student...

The urology resident's large, lively family... 

The dietetic intern and the orthodontics graduate student...

Finally, my favorite, the student nurse and the husband who gave up his job in Tillamook so she could attend nursing school!
