Ophthalmology 1700-1900: Celebrating the collection of Jerry F. Donin, M.D.
June-August 2015
OHSU Main Library, BICC Building 3rd floor

OHSU Historical Collections & Archives is pleased to announce the opening of our summer exhibit, “Ophthalmology 1700-1900: Celebrating the collection of Jerry F. Donin, M.D.”

Drawing from rare books and artifacts in OHSU Historical Collections & Archives, this exhibit highlights key developments leading to the modernization of ophthalmology. The exhibit celebrates Mrs. Jacqueline Donin’s generous donation of rare books on ophthalmology  to OHSU Historical Collections & Archives. The gift  consists of over 100 18th-20th century titles from the collection of her late husband, Dr. Jerry F. Donin. An ophthalmologist and avid book collector, Dr. Donin built one of the finest ophthalmology collections in private hands. OHSU Library is honored to provide these books with a permanent home, where they can be shared with the OHSU community and the public.

The exhibit is on display in the OHSU Main Library, on the third floor of the Biomedical Information and Communication Center (BICC) on OHSU’s Marquam Hill campus. For a campus map, as well as customized driving, biking, and transit directions, please visit the interactive OHSU map:
