Unveiling the MGH Archives
A look into the MGH archives with Lucy Ross, Archivist of the Massachusetts General Hospital.
About this Event

Step into the captivating world of medical history with Lucy Ross, Archivist of the Massachusetts General Hospital. Lucy will guide us through the history of the MGH Archives, housed in the historic Resident Physician's House. Delving into the archives, which hold the official records of the hospital dating back to its beginnings, we will explore the ghastly and charming quirks of medical history. Materials held in the archives span from the Ether Collection, to 19th-century surgical case records, to an 1849 ticket to a chemistry lecture by Dr. John Webster (of the infamous Parkman-Webster M**der case). There will be time at the end for an archival show-and-tell and any questions.
