Center for the History of Medicine

The Center for the History of Medicine is one of the world's leading collections in the history of health care and medicine, attracting researchers from around the world to consult its rare books and journals, archives and manuscripts, photographs and prints, and art and artifact collections. The history of medicine plays a critical role in informing contemporary medicine, at the same time that it informs our understanding of the larger society within which medicine is embedded. (Photo: Radiographic print of the hand of Alexandra, Empress of Russia, 1898, Lloyd E. Hawes Collection in the History of Radiology, Harvard Medical Library).

Warren Anatomical Museum

The Warren Anatomical Museum originated from professor John Collins Warren’s 1846 donation of his personal teaching collection to inform the Harvard Medical School’s anatomical and pathological classrooms and research.  The Museum's present collection contains approximately 15,000 artifacts and medical cases, including: anatomical and pathological preparations; various wax, paper mache and dry preparation anatomical models; photographs, prints, paintings and drawings; medical instruments and machines; and other medical memorabilia.  (Photo: Beauchene teaching skull, mounted, 19th century, Warren Anatomical Museum [WAM TEMP00510])
