The Cushing/Whitney Medical Library benefits from the generosity of many donors. Our library’s founders, Doctors Harvey Cushing, Arnold C. Klebs and John F. Fulton, donated their collection of books to Yale on the premise that a new medical library is created. Over the years, the library’s collections grew rapidly between gifts and purchases, often made from endowments that donors provided.
Today, the tradition continues, as donations help ensure a rich collection of books and other materials. Recently we received a donation of three copies of a glossary titled “English-Chinese Glossary of Basic Human Anatomy,” a gift from the authors, Hongyu Liu and Tao Wang.
