Summary
In 1858, young English surgeons Henry Gray and Henry VanDyke Carter published an illustrated anatomy textbook for medical students. Gray's Anatomy has never since been out of print, but little was known about its author and illustrator until acclaimed science writer Bill Hayes—inspired by a photograph of Henry Gray—pieced together their story in The Anatomist. This Medical Center Hour explores the medical, historical, and artistic significance of Gray's Anatomy and also Hayes's unforgettable year alongside medical students in the anatomy lab.
