This site celebrates twentieth-century leaders in biomedical research and public health. It includes archival collections of prominent scientists, physicians, and others.
Each digital collection consists of two major parts. The first part is an exhibit composed of introductory narratives on the scientist's life and work and a selection of noteworthy documents (text, audiotapes, video clips and photographs). The second part consists of additional documents from the scientist's papers, available through a search engine and in alphabetical and chronological "views."
