Dana Hosts Plaque-Hanging Ceremony and Medical History Open House

On March 27th, Dana Medical Library hung a commemorative plaque that honors the famous physician, poet and soldier, Dr. John McCrae. UVM Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine dedicated the plaque to the library in 2016 when the library hosted a talk and exhibit on John McCrae. He was also the author of the famous poem, In Flanders Fields.

The library also hosted a Medical History Open House at this time to showcase its extensive medical history collection.  In addition to a collection of books specifically devoted to the history of medicine in Vermont, the Medical History room contains a large display cabinet filled with tools dating from the early 19th century, and other artifacts used by physicians in Vermont and elsewhere.

In attendance were individuals from the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, the Chittenden County Historical Society and the UVM Libraries. Director Marianne Burke spoke and Medical History Librarian Angie Chapple-Sokol gave a brief talk on Dr. John McCrae.

Dana’s Medical History room is open to the public every Wednesday, 1-3pm. For more information, contact Angie Chapple-Sokol at Anne.Chapple-Sokol@uvm.edu.
