Over the course of 2016, the Cushing/Whitney Medical Library will be celebrating 75 years since its founding.   The Medical Library’s anniversary kick-off event on Friday was a great success. Harvey Cushing himself made a special appearance. He was available for photographs with everyone, including these 3 students.

Everyone enjoyed the cake, which featured the Library’s 75th logo.  The Library has also begun to collect audio snippets of people's recollections of the Library. We will soon begin to update the library's Facebook page with these stories.
