National Library of Medicine Traveling Exhibit to be Displayed at Health Professions Division Library, Ends May 1

The Henkel Physicians: A Family’s Life in Letters: an exhibition developed and produced by the Exhibition Program at the National Library of Medicine will be on display in the NSU Health Professions Division (HPD) Library – Central Aisle from Monday, March 25 through Wednesday, May 1. The free exhibit is open to the public

About the exhibition: Several generations of fathers and sons studied medicine after the Henkel family settled in New Market, Virginia in 1790. Over the course of their careers, these physicians ministered to their community, tended to their countrymen on the battlefield, and testified in the nation’s courts of law.  The letters of the Henkel family richly document the daily life of men in medicine in the 19th century and reveal the challenges, rewards and responsibilities of the profession. Covering more than a century of life in the Shenandoah Valley, this exhibition features a selection of writings that cover local events, professional jealousies, the national crisis of the Civil War and the dramatic testimony of the Henkel physicians in a murder trial. Each letter vividly illustrates the writer’s personality and their experiences as physicians. The exhibition is curated by Jim Labosier.

The Health Professions Division Library – Central Aisle Library is located at HPD in the Lab Building 3, 1st Floor.
