50 Years of Earth Day: The Environmental Movement at CUIMC and Beyond

April 22, 2020 marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. In this exhibit, holdings from Archives & Special Collections help tell the story of the development of environmental studies from the health sciences perspective–beginning with works dating to the industrial revolution, the development of environmental health sciences in the Mailman School of Public Health, and through documents stemming from student activism during the 1960s-70s that contributed to the modern environmental movement. Additional items will feature environmental concerns at CUIMC and beyond. This online exhibit complements the exhibit installed on the Lower Level 2 in the Hammer Health Sciences Building, February 12-May 15, 2020.

Reflected Moments: The Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center, 1957-1991 – Selections from the Elizabeth Wilcox Photographic Collection

This catalog presents a selection of photographs that offers a glimpse of the riches within the Elizabeth Wilcox Photographic Collection. We hope that it is the first in a series of catalogs that will document the diversity and growth of the Medical Center as represented in the work of Libby Wilcox. I hope you share our enthusiasm for this splendid gift to the Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center, a precious insight into our past that is equally important to the history of medicine as a whole.
