Do you know where and/or what this is?
It’s a photo of William Welch’s luggage and one of his notebooks. You can find it in one of two glass cases across from Sheldon Hall (our second largest lecture hall).
The cases house a number of public health artifacts: William Welch’s microscope, George Comstock’s UNICEF bag and an early 20th Century biostatistics calculating machine. There are vials, beakers and photos from various points on the timeline of public health.
It’s a mini museum right here in our own building.
Next time you’re here, take a look.
