Description

First-year medical students, DeWitt Allen Green, Ernest Bingham Oliver, Harold Bengloff, and Bruce Robinson Merrill, produced these drawings as part of their assigned course work on a cadaver in the fall of 1934.

According to the description in Medical School's catalogue from that year, "In the study of gross anatomy, students make a complete dissection of one half of the human body, and all of the class dissect the same part at the same time. Four men will be assigned to the same subject, and will work together during the course. The study of the skeleton is carried on with the dissection, and each student will be provided with a box of bones which may be kept throughout the course. There will be lectures or demonstrations which are arranged to correspond as closely as possible with the work in the dissecting room. These lectures not only will serve as a guide to the regular work in the dissecting room, but also will be used to emphasize those details of human anatomy which the student cannot easily study for himself in his own dissection."
