Wondering what’s going on in that blurry photo in my banner?
It’s a photo from the hospital museum I work for, the HCMC History Museum. It shows a librarian and children reading in the peds ward, 1938, in the old Minneapolis General Hospital. I like the connections the photo makes: books, hospitals, libraries, history. It shows as well that storytelling and the written word have been and continue to be vital to the medical experience, for both patients and practitioners.
