Great Basin History of Medicine
These images represent just a portion of our collection of over 7,000 photographs that relate to the School of Medicine; the Nevada State Medical Association and member societies; the Reno Surgical Society; 19th-century frontier military medicine in the Great Basin; and Nevada hospitals, doctors, nurses, dentists, and veterinarians. The photo collection documents over 100 years of healthcare for Nevada's citizens. In addition to these web-posted photographs, our collection includes 35 mm slides and negatives that are also indexed. The collection is in the Doctors Hood History of Medicine Library, which is part of the Savitt Medical Library in the Pennington Building on the Reno campus. The library contains an antique medical instrument exhibit, over 90 oral histories, and books on the history of medicine. The collection is open to the public.
Although the photographic images in this digital collection are offered without copyright restrictions, we request that the University of Nevada School of Medicine be credited as the source of any image copied from this site.
