Biographical / Historical
The examination table was originally owned by John Rock, MD. At an unknown point mid-20th century Rock transferred the table to the donor's father, Gordon A. Donaldson, MD, Class of 1935 at HMS. The table was held/used by Dr. Donaldson and Gordon Scannell, MD in their shared office in the late 1940's and the early 1950's. The donor, Magruder Donaldson, eventually inherited the table from his father, and gave it to the Warren Anatomical Museum in 2019.
