The Cushing Collection at Yale University

The New York Times has a piece and a slide show presentation about the collection of brain samples stored at Yale University by Dr. Harvey Cushing.  Cushing, who died in 1939 and donated the collection to the university, was a well-known neurosurgeon, who helped lead the field toward respectability in the early 20th century.  The Cushing collection in the Cushing/Whitney Medical Library at Yale University at 333 Cedar Street, New Haven, is open to the public Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; and Sunday, 9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.
