Acquisition Information

The Faculty and Staff Portrait Collection is an artificial collection assembled from the holdings of the Harvard Medical Library and the Boston Medical Library. The collection is now housed in the Center for the History of Medicine of the Countway Library. Images were acquired individually, or removed from manuscript or archival collections and filed by name. Because of this practice, the provenance of many of the images has been lost.

Library Digital Initiative Project Description

This finding aid was produced as part of a Library Digital Initiative (LDI) grant project. To provide increased access to visual collections, the LDI project staff is describing approximately 4100 historical images of Harvard Medical School, Harvard School of Dental Medicine, Harvard School of Public Health, and the Boston Medical Library in a series of OASIS finding aids. Of the images described in these finding aids, 1600 will be digitized, stored in the Harvard Digital Repository (DRS), and viewable online. To provide historical context, the finding aids will also include links to digitized pages of Harvard annual reports in the Harvard-Radcliffe Online Historical Reference Shelf.
