Northwestern's Dispensaries and Outpatient Clinics

Research Tips

As part of the Galter Health Sciences Library's new exhibit, Photographing Pediatrics, Special Collections Librarian Ron Sims compiled a pictorial history of the dispensary and clinics at Northwestern. Here is part one of the article, which was originally published in Galter Health Science Library’s, Library Notes newsletter:

Waiting Room, South Side Dispensary, Davis Hall, c1910
This helpful article explains the relationships and name changes of institutions associated with Northwestern's medical past, including the Chicago City Dispensary, the Medical Department of Lind University, Chicago Medical College, Mercy Hospital, Davis Free Dispensary, and the South Side Dispensary. 

For more information on the Photographing Pediatrics exhibit and a previous exhibit, An American Original: John Benjamin Murphy, M.D. check out this CAMA blog post from earlier this summer:
