New Online Guide and Multimedia Exhibit

The Alan Mason Chesney Medical Archives of the Johns Hopkins Medical
Institutions announces the online publication of the Guide to the William H.
Welch Collection and an accompanying online exhibit that features items from
the Welch Collection.

The Guide to the William H. Welch Collection
<http://www.med.jhu.edu/medarchives/sgml/whw/WHW-D.htm>

This guide provides a documentary overview of Welch's life (1850-1934) from
childhood through career and post-retirement years. It contains a listing of
materials in the collection and an index to the materials listed.  Because
Welch was a major figure in early twentieth-century medicine and public
health, this collection is an especially rich resource for study. There is
correspondence with leading European and American scientists and extensive
materials pertaining to his enterprising career at Johns Hopkins. For the
Hospital he developed the first pathological laboratory and served as first
pathologist-in-chief. For the University he served as the first professor of
pathology, first dean of the medical faculty, founder and first director of
the School of Hygiene and Public Health, and founder, first director of the
Institute of the History of Medicine, and planner of the library that bears
his name.  Other materials of significance include family correspondence,
diaries,  lecture and research notes, drafts of articles and addresses, and
photographic and other visual holdings. The guide is available in both HTML
and SGML/EAD. Browse through the Guide to the William H. Welch Collection to
see the full extent of the materials that are available for study.

William H. Welch, A Tribute Exhibition
<http://www.med.jhu.edu/medarchives/welch/welcome.htm>

This exhibition celebrates the 150th anniversary of Welch's birth (8 April
1850) and commemorates his many contributions to twentieth-century medicine
and public health.  The exhibit includes a biography of Welch and a chronology
of major events in his life. On display are letters, photographs, excerpts
from diaries, and a 1932 audio recording of Welch discussing the fiftieth
anniversary of the tubercle bacillus. Of particular interest is a 1932  motion
picture of Welch reminiscing about the early days of the Johns Hopkins School
of Medicine and major developments in the modern medical sciences. Visit the
virtual exhibit to see Welch in photographs from childhood to old age, to read
his prose, to hear him speaking, and to see him star in a  motion picture
documentary.
