New exhibit: Anatomy at the Bleeding Edge
As an homage to the Body Worlds 3 exhibit now open at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, OHSU Historical Collections & Archives has installed a new display in the Main Library lobby: Anatomy at the Bleeding Edge. As usual, the exhibit brings together materials from our historical image, book, and museum collections, this time to highlight the history of anatomy and anatomical teaching at OHSU.
Notable items include:
- Reconstitutable human aorta
- Plasticized human heart and coronary artery structure
- The Bourgery Atlas
- Da Vinci drawings
- Sketches from the Clarice Ashworth Francone Collection
- Images from Vesalius' De humani corporis fabrica
Original drawing by Clarice Ashworth Francone. Francone began working part-time at the University of Oregon Medical School in 1936, eventually becoming head of the Medical Illustration department. For many years, Francone was the only medical illustrator in Oregon.
