HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Have fun out there, but don’t go bleeding yourself dry! Do however stop by the Special Collections display on the 6th floor if you’d like to see some grisly bloodletting tools. These bloodletting scarificators range in different styles and sizes for the whole family! And to better get acquainted with this age old art, below is a selection of books from our collection here at Hirsh:

Researches on the effects of bloodletting, 1836

Andreas Vesalius Bruxellensis: the bloodletting letter of 1539

Galen on bloodletting : a study of the origins, development, and validity of his opinions, with a translation of the three works

Nine pints : a journey through the money, medicine, and mysteries of blood

Old Housing in Mound Bayou Demonstration of an Interesting Case by Dr. Siegfried Thannhauser

We are pleased to announce the creation of two research guides that highlight some of our archival materials.  Funded by an Express Library Digitization Award from the National Network of Libraries of Medicine New England Region, they contain images and links to full-text articles from the library’s collection of materials regarding Tufts’ role in the community-health- center movement and the Jewish physicians who joined the Tufts faculty as a result of the “German Brain Drain” in World War II.  We encourage you to visit these guides and experience the rich history of Tufts University School of Medicine!

Boston to Mound Bayou: Columbia Point & Delta Health Center
With its establishment of the Columbia Point Health Center (Boston, MA) and Delta Health Center, Inc. (Mound Bayou, MS), Tufts helped launch the community-health-center movement.  This guide features background information about the community-health-center movement as well as materials related to the pioneering work of TUSM faculty members H. Jack Geiger and Count Gibson.
