Description

The Harvard Medical School student in the 1890s attended anatomy lectures four times each week, with additional hours devoted to practical anatomical dissection. Ralph C. Larrabee, who received a medical degree from Harvard in 1897, preserved his notes from his courses in first-year and advanced anatomy as well as his recitation sessions. Displayed are passages related to lectures on the skull as a whole and the nasal cavities by Thomas Dwight; the large teaching skulls made by J. H. Emerton for Thomas Dwight's lectures would have been available at this time. The instructions for the dissecting-room were issued by Franklin Dexter (1857-1927), the Demonstrator of Anatomy.
