Abstract: The photographs and prints described in this finding aid portray departmental faculty and research staff; lectures, labs, and clinical training for students; and research laboratories at Harvard Medical School.

Immediate Source of Acquisition:

The Harvard Medical School Departments Photographs, ca. 1913-1992, is a series from an artificial collection assembled in the 1960s from the holdings of the Harvard Medical Library and the Boston Medical Library. The photographs are now housed at the Center for the History of Medicine in Countway Library. Images were acquired individually or removed from manuscript or archival collections and filed by subject. Because of this practice, the provenance of many of the images has been lost.

Processing Information:

Processed by Judy Greene, August 17, 2004. Selected information from the image collections management database at the Center for the History of Medicine in Countway Library was exported for inclusion in this finding aid. Formal titles for photographs are used when supplied, otherwise, descriptive titles were created and enclosed in brackets. When possible, images are described as groups rather than individually and representative images selected for viewing on-line. 'Identical' images may vary in condition and the presence or absence of inscriptions or mounts. Location number includes size. Images are small (S = less than 8 x 10 inches), medium (M = greater than 8 x 10 inches and less than 11 x 14 inches), or large (L = greater than 11 x 14 inches and less than 16 x 20 inches). A few images have also been cataloged more fully in VIA, Harvard's on-line image database.

Conditions Governing Access:

Online access to larger views of some thumbnails is restricted by copyright and may be available only to Harvard ID holders. For more information please see the Copyright and Permissions Statement on the OASIS home page.
Original images are available for research use at the Center for the History of Medicine. Retrieval requires advance notice. There may be restrictions on access to some materials. Consult the Public Services Librarian for further information.

Series Overview

Library Digital Initiative Project Description

This finding aid was produced as part of a Library Digital Initiative (LDI) grant project. To provide increased access to visual collections, the LDI project staff is describing approximately 4500 historical images of Harvard Medical School, Harvard School of Dental Medicine, Harvard School of Public Health, and the Boston Medical Library in a series of OASIS finding aids. Of the images described in these finding aids, 1600 will be digitized, stored in the Harvard Digital Repository (DRS), and viewable online. To provide historical context, the finding aids also include links to digitized pages of Harvard annual reports in the Harvard-Radcliffe Online Historical Reference Shelf.
