Marion Krippaehne photographs

I posted last week about Marion Krippaehne, M.D.'s passing on April 15. Our Historical Images Collection includes many images of Dr. Krippaehne during her long career at OHSU:

Above: At work in the hospital, circa 1970s-1980s

Above: Portrait, circa 1960s

Above: Another portrait, probably an outtake circa 1950s, reveals lots of personality! 

Higher-resolution scans of these photographs will be available soon in the Digital Resources Library, which contains two other photos of Dr. Krippaehne.

Behind the scenes

Karen and Jeff have been hard at work shifting collections and cleaning up stacks space to help accommodate new materials from the School of Dentistry and university administrative offices. Last week they took on the small, cramped room where most of our museum collection is stored. Karen snapped a nice "behind the scenes" photo of the newly tidied space:

Large artifacts sit on open shelving, while small and fragile items are stored in archival boxes. All are indiividually tagged with an accession number that uniquely identifies each item.

Selections from our artifacts collection are included in rotating exhibits in the Main Library, but we hope someday to have a permanent museum display.
