Engravings (prints)

Description

Students attended lectures in the basement of Harvard Hall, but by 1797, the condition of this facility was described—at least for Aaron Dexter's lectures on chemistry—as "unhealthy, inconvenient, and disgraceful," and new space was then provided in Holden Chapel by 1800. One room each was allotted to the professors of physic and chemistry, and John Warren's anatomical and surgical lectures and demonstrations were delivered in the room above.
