New Online Exhibits from the Medical History Center

Portrait of Dr Iga Mori and Dr Adelaide Brown with text: "Introducing New Online Exhibits from the Medical History Center"

In celebration of Diversity Week, the Medical History Center is launching two new online exhibits. These are based on the physical exhibits you may have seen in the library foyer, and they highlight two nineteenth-century graduates of Cooper Medical College, the school that became Stanford Medicine.

Adelaide Brown was one of the first women to graduate from the school. Iga Mori was one of the school’s first Asian graduates. Both of them went on to careers in medicine and public health that demonstrate obstacles they faced as well as their resilience and activism.

On Wednesday, October 14 at 11 am, Dr. Drew Bourn, Historical Curator at the Medical History Center in Lane Library, will discuss these exhibits, as well as resources at Lane Library for exploring the ways that the history of Stanford Medicine is tied to larger histories about race, immigration, gender, and sexuality.
