Harvard Medical School

Shared publicly  - 
 
Today we're celebrating Oliver Wendell Holmes on what would be his 206th birthday.

Born in 1809, Dr. Holmes was a preeminent 19th century writer, physician, and Dean of Harvard Medical School. In his role as physician and scientist, he identified the cause of childbed fever, introduced the microscope to medical education in America, and taught at HMS for thirty-five years. He was also chosen as the namesake for the first educational society at HMS and the first president of the Boston Medical Library.

Dr. Holmes is photographed here with a microscope in 1860. Photo credit: The Harvard Medical Library/Boston Medical Library.

The only thing that bugs me is why this kid has notebooks in the pocket meant for small items.
