Digital Library Collections: Harvey Cushing/John Hay Whitney Medical Library

The collections at the Harvey Cushing/John Hay Whitney Medical Library at Yale are rather extensive, and they have recently made a selection of their holdings available online for general consideration. This particular website includes three digital collections, including the Peter Parker Collection, a collection of portrait engravings and a biography of Harvey Cushing, a noted doctor and medical innovator. The Peter Parker Collection is rather intriguing as it is a collection of 83 mid-19th century oil paintings executed by Lam Qua. The subject matter is one to note as well, as they are all of Chinese patients with tumors who were under the care and supervision of the Yale-trained medical missionary Peter Parker. The collection of portraits is equally compelling, as it includes hundreds of images of such people as John James Audubon and Andreas Vesalius. [KMG]
