The Latest News from the Winkler Center

By: Natalie Grieszmer, Winkler Center Associate

The Henry R. Winkler Center publishes a newsletter twice a year, updating you on what is new (or in some cases very old!) and exciting in Cincinnati’s medical history. The Winkler Center Newsletter is available in print and on the web at:  www.libraries.uc.edu/hsl/history

Dr. Albert B. Sabin

Some highlights from this edition are a profile of Dr. Leon Goldman, a native Cincinnatian who is known as the “Father of Laser Medicine.”  Dr. Goldman’s archives, as well as his Medicine in Art Collection can be viewed at the Winkler Center.  There’s also an update on the work being done with Albert B. Sabin’s collection of correspondence and photographs, as well as Dr. Henry J. Heimlich’s archives. 

Another highlight in this edition is the annual Cecil Striker Society lecture that took place in May.  The topic dealt with military medicine in WWII, with a focus on the UC-staffed 25th General Hospital.  To view this lecture and find out more information about this topic, go to: http://www.libraries.uc.edu/hsl/history/exhibits/25thGeneralHospital/

So once again, the Winkler Center Newsletter is available in print on request (513-558-5120 or chhp@uc.edu) and on the web at: www.libraries.uc.edu/hsl/history
