Washington University Medical Center Construction and Dedication Photographs

Date(s)

  • 1912-1939 (Creation)

Extent

1.65 Linear Feet

Scope and content

This collection consists of 41 glass lantern slides and duplicate photographic prints. This series of glass slides appears to have been collected in the Department of Surgery as a presentation on the history of the Washington University Medical Center circa 1912 through 1939. A few of the slides duplicate photographs found in other visual collections. However, the majority are unique photographs of the construction of the WU Medical Center, or are the only visual records documenting important events, including the cornerstone laying for the WUSM North Building in 1913 (VC057025, VC057026) and a ceremony prior to the construction of St. Louis Maternity Hospital (VC057037). Descriptions of the pictures were provided by Dr. Eugene Bricker.
