Dr. Henry Claman was a man of many interests and accomplishments. He was a member of the faculty of the University of Colorado School of Medicine for over 50 years, 25 of them as Head of the Division of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, and he was the driving force behind the establishment of the Arts and Humanities in Healthcare Program on the Anschutz Medical Campus. In support of the program, Dr. Claman and his wife, Dr. Janet Stewart Claman, established The Henry and Janet Claman Medical Humanities Collection at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Library. An exhibit honoring a few of his accomplishments and contributions to his field, to the University, and to the Health Sciences Library is featured in the exhibit case on the 3rd floor, between the elevator and the Special Collections Room.

Before the rigorous application process of formal medical education was required, anyone who could afford a few dollars could attend medical lectures, and eventually become a doctor. The Medical Lecture Ticket exhibit showcases several lecture tickets from all over the US, including from the University of Denver’s Dental Department and the Denver and Gross Medical College. The tickets represent an era where there was little regulation and oversight. Although seen as democratizing education, the medical ticket system often led to abuse and poorly trained doctors. The tickets disappeared as medical education reformers began to create the modern medical school application process and curriculum that medical school follow today.
