The Dana Medical Library is currently displaying two exhibits that honor multi-generation physician families in Vermont and Virginia. “Multi-Generation Vermont Physician Families: Graduates of the UVM College of Medicine” highlights the Bove, Irwin, Terrien, and Upton families and is on view until April. The Library would like to thank the College of Medicine Public Relations Office for their assistance in creating this exhibit.
“The Henkel Physicians: A Family’s Life in Letters,” is a traveling exhibition developed and produced by the National Library of Medicine. It is on view in the Library until March 5, 2014. The exhibit offers a glimpse into the daily lives of men of medicine in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley during the 19th Century. Several generations of fathers and sons studied medicine after the Henkel family settled in New Market, Virginia in 1790. More information regarding this traveling exhibit is available here.
Please visit the Library to view these exhibits honoring Vermont and Virginia multi-generation physician families.
