Exploring Histories of Diversity at Stanford Medicine
Two new online exhibits at Lane Library highlight the stories of 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.
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.
Please note: This class will be held via Zoom. The instructor will send the Zoom link 24 hours before the session.
