Description

Five generations of physicians and educators in the Warren family assembled over 2,000 books, pamphlets, and manuscripts on medicine and surgical practice. At his death in 1928, Dr. John Warren bequeathed to the Harvard Medical Library this magnificent collection which forms the nucleus of the Warren Library. Originally shelved in cabinets in an alcove on the second floor of Gordon Hall, beneath the Warren Anatomical Museum, the Warren Library is now one of the special collections housed at the Countway Library of Medicine.
