Digital Clendening (DC)

Unveiled on May 15, this site brings together and highlights the present and future digital offerings of the Clendening Library at the University of Kansas Medical Center, including Letters Written by Florence Nightingale. The collections, eight in all, are accessed via this gateway. The Nightingale exhibit contains the full text (HTML transcriptions and page images) of approximately 40 letters, listed by recipient or chronologically with summaries, or searchable via a keyword search engine. The Rare Text Images section includes "hundreds of images from medical and natural history texts, most of which were printed before 1800," browseable by category and offered as large thumbnails with annotations and related text. Additional sections include a collection of over 500 portraits of physicians and scientists (under construction), a complete index and some examples of the photos collected by Professor of Medicine and History of Medicine Ralph Major for his lectures and publications, a translated autobiographical outline and letter concerning Crown Prince Frederick III by the famous nineteenth-century pathologist Dr. Rudolf Virchow, and an inventory of the Samuel Crumbine archival collection. Two additional sections that are still in development will offer exhibits on Japanese medical prints and Chinese public health posters.
