Curator's Introduction to the Warren Anatomical Museum

Curator's Introduction to the Warren Anatomical Museum

The Warren Anatomical Museum is one of the last surviving anatomy and pathology museum collections in the United States. In 1847, Harvard anatomist and surgeon John Collins Warren founded the Museum to preserve and classify specimens and models needed for teaching. Until 1999, the Museum was in the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology. It is now an integral part of the Countway Library's Center for the History of Medicine.

Join Dominic Hall, Curator, Warren Anatomical for an introduction to the Museum and its collections. Representative objects and artifacts will be on display.

Tour meets in the front lobby of the Center for the History of Medicine, L2 of the Countway Library.

Registration is limited to 15.
