Last Wednesday, October 24th, over 35 attendees had the pleasure of exploring the “Hidden Treasures of South Campus” by taking a Walk into History. More details were reported in news items published prior to the event on the Honors College “Honorable Mention” events page, the UB News Center, and The Reporter, enticing folks to sign up!
The event showcased collections located in different buildings across the South Campus: George W. Ferry Dental Museum in Squire Hall, School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences Apothecary and Historical Exhibits in Kapoor Hall, Museum of Neuroanatomy (Brain Museum) in the Biomedical Education Building, and the Robert L. Brown History of the Health Sciences Collection in the Health Sciences Library and the Museum of Radiology & Medical Physics, both in Abbott Hall.
A wonderful article in The Spectrum entitled “South Campus’ hidden treasures: A rich medical history is within its walls” gave a post-event perspective from a student who used the opportunity to introduce her parents to the campus.
Approximately 25 participants were also treated to refreshments and a panel discussion by Dr. Jim Bono, Dr. Michael Rembis and Dr. David Herzberg, all from the UB Department of History.
All of the South Campus “hidden treasures” collections staff have been delighted with the positive feedback from attendees at this first event. Watch for future Walks into History!
Meanwhile, you can read all about the collections in our brochure that was handed out at the event on October 24th.
A hearty “thank you” to everyone who contributed to the day!
