Description

Two years after the opening the Medical School, this account, published by the Harvard Corporation in the Boston magazine, described the progress of the new institution. Anatomical study under John Warren was one of the foundations of the curriculum, and, by 1785, the Corporation could report that "a number of very valuable natural preparations of the whole, as well as of the several parts of the human body, are procured, and frequent additions are making to the anatomical apparatus: these, together with the actual dissection of recent subjects, for which a convenient theatre is erected, furnish ample means for acquiring an accurate knowledge of the structure of the human body, and of the animal oeconomy."
