Provenance

Before Charles Lowell died in 1858, he requested a postmortem be performed to measure the extent of his hip injury. Harvard physician H. K. Oliver performed the autopsy and prepared the mounted specimen. In 2009 Harvard Medical School's William H. and Johanna A. Harris Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery James H. Herdon imaged the hip for his research on the Lowell case and donated the scans to the Warren Anatomical Museum.
