Exhibit on the History of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy

A new exhibit in the Rudolph Matas Library features gastrointestinal instruments on loan from the collection of Dr. George E. Welch. The display includes a historical timeline of gastrointestinal endoscopy from 1804 to the present. The exhibit is located in the glass cases in the hallway off the main reading area. We are grateful to Dr. Welch (photo to right) and Dr. John J. Hutchings for their efforts in making this exhibit possible.
