Format
Video; DVD; Online
Summary
Jodi L. Koste, M.A. (Associate Professor, VCU Libraries; Archivist and Head, Resources and Operations, Tompkins-McCaw Library for the Health Sciences, Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, Virginia) described the history of anatomy instruction in schools of medicine in general and most specifically in the Commonwealth of Virginia during the nineteenth century. Highlighted were the Schools of Medicine at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville and the Medical Department of Hampden Sydney College (later established as the Medical College of Virginia) in Richmond, Virginia. Koste unearthed the use of unclaimed bodies as well as practices using illegal and unethical means for obtaining and transporting bodies for instruction. Persons such as Robley Dunglison, Augustus L. Warner, Thomas Johnson, James Lawrence Cabell, John Staige Davis, H.L. Thomas, Carter Page Johnson, Levin S. Joynes, and Jeffries Wyman were among those illustrated in this history. Barry T. Hinton, Ph.D. (Professor of Cell Biology, University of Virginia) followed with a caricature on the "Class of 1880" and the anatomy materials that would be required along with comments on present day human body procurements by donation.
