Head over to the New York Times to see a selection of photos from the collection of almost 10,000 glass plate negatives of patients treated by Dr. Harvey Cushing between 1902 and 1933.

The Cushing Collection, which also include tumor specimen photos, microscopic images and a massive 500 human brains is now open to the public at Yale University.

Check out the NY Times article about the neurosurgery pioneer’s collection here. For those interested in reading more about Cushing’s life and work, the Cushing/Whitney Medical Library at Yale has digitized and made freely available nine books by and about Harvey Cushing.

Hat tip to Morbid Anatomy.
