Shikes Medical Lecture Tickets Exhibit

Debra and Jessica just finished installing the new Shikes Medical Lecture Tickets Exhibit in the main lobby. This exhibit replaces the School of Pharmacy exhibit that has been in the display case previously.

The medical lecture tickets were recently digitized and added to the digital repository, Mountain Scholar. The tickets are part of the Shikes artifacts collection. Paul, who works with artifacts at Strauss library, selected items from the donation that could be digitized and uploaded into the repository.

For the exhibit, there are some tickets printed to fit a full sheet (the ones in the top two rows), and also some printed in their actual size (the bottom two rows. You can see what the tickets looked like for the medical students who used them!

Medical students would use these tickets to attend medical lectures. Once they had attended a number of lectures, they could graduate. The tickets show what the lecture topic was, and the doctor who was teaching the course. Sometimes the tickets had to be signed on the back by the instructor to verify that the student had attended the lectures.

Schedule of a student’s junior year

In the exhibit are also two course schedules, so you can these students’ schedules were like. There are receipts from students who paid for their class. In the center of the exhibit is also a card from a physician listing the classes he attended, as an advertisement of his expertise.

A student’s senior year schedule

You can see a selection of the medical lecture tickets in the exhibit, and please visit our digital repository to see the entire collection. We are working on digitizing items from the Shikes donation to the repository, please check back as we work on adding these to the repository!

Witness to the Holocaust: Sculpture dedication and panel discussion

Two events that are part of this year’s Holocaust Genocide and Contemporary Bioethics Program will take place in the Strauss Health Sciences Library.  The Program is an annual event that is organized by the Center for Bioethics and Humanities.  The Program’s goal is to promote education, scholarship, and community engagement on the lessons of the Holocaust.  All Program events are free and open to the public.  This year the Program includes events at all four CU campuses and a session at UCHealth.

The events in the Strauss Library will be held on April 30th.  There will be a dedication event at Noon on the 3rd floor for the Devorah Sperber sculptures “Witness to the Holocaust”.  The dedication will be followed by a panel discussion at 1:00 pm in the Reading Room.  The topic for the discussion is “Health Professionals, Patients and the Public Trust”.  Reservations are requested, but not required.  We hope you can attend one, or more, the events!
