Tremont Street Medical School
Holmes, Oliver Wendell, 1809-1894

Description

Holmes was one of the founders and faculty members of the Tremont Street Medical School; he offered courses in anatomy, physiology, and, as attested by this prospectus for the 1848 course, regular instruction in microscopic anatomy, and was one of the first physicians in America to do so. The microscopic demonstrations are described in an 1853 catalogue of the Tremont School: "These will be given by Dr. Holmes, weekly, through the Spring months…. They will illustrate by recent specimens, and a large number of carefully selected English and French preparations, the leading facts of animal and vegetable structure and development, and will be enforced by practical tests of the students' knowledge."
