Neuro-oncology Gives Back

Gift to the Yale Historical Medical Library

Through the generosity of an anonymous donor, the Section of Neuro-oncology is pleased to announce that a unique collection of medical documents have been donated to the Yale Medical Historical Library. 

This collection of 54 articles and addresses, written by Harvey Cushing, M.D. between 1905 and 1933, includes essential papers in the development of neurosurgery in the United States. Dr. Cushing, an eminent neurosurgeon, was also an ardent book collector and co-founder of the Yale Historical Medical Library. Accompanying the collection is a rare note signed by Sir William Osler, the Regius Professor of Medicine at Oxford. Written in 1910, this note congratulates the publisher on completion of the latest textbook of Osler, The Principles And Practice Of Medicine. 

This valuable material will be cataloged and preserved for use by the Yale medical community and historians.
