OHSU Historical Collections & Archives is pleased to announce the opening of our winter exhibit, “Lines of Disharmony: Skeletal Malocclusions and Aesthetics in the Development of American Orthodontic Practice,” curated by HC&A student assistant Sylvie Huhn.

This exhibit examines the development of orthodontics and oral surgery in the United States, specifically the corrective practices for Class I, Class II and Class III skeletal malocclusions, using rare books, artifacts, and archival materials from OHSU Historical Collections & Archives. In addition, the exhibit highlights the psychosocial stigma patients faced in regards to beauty standards and descriptions within early medical literature. 

The exhibit will be on display January – May 2016 in the OHSU Main Library, on the third floor of the Biomedical Information and Communication Center (BICC) on OHSU’s Marquam Hill campus.
