CYBER MUSEUM FEATURED EXHIBIT
Dr. HARVEY CUSHING - A BOOK OF PHOTOGRAPHS

This bound collection of photos was donated to the AANS Archives by Richard U. Light. Dr. Light was one of Dr. Cushing's last residents, an avid photographer, and a pilot. Dr. Light, with Dr. Walter Boyd, filmed Harvey Cushing's 2000th Verified Brain Tumor Operation. This collection of photos were taken between 1928 and 1932 by Dr. Light and is copy #4 of this scrapbook-like book.

Dr. Light's generosity to the Archives includes a wealth of photographic media. Future "Featured Exhibits" will include the case history of one of Dr. Cushing's last patients and excerpts from Dr. Light's "A Seaplane Cruise Around the World".
