Willie Goes to Woman's

1962-1962   1.0 object
These items were created from and for "Willie Goes to Woman's", a musical play that was produced and performed in 1962 by students, faculty and residents of the Woman's Medical College of Pennsylvania. The donor was the musical director and stated that the production was reflective of the fact that the WMC community was aware that it would soon be forced into coeducation because of Federal government granting agencies' criteria. (Men were admitted in 1970.) The records were sold as part of a campaign to raise funds for a piece of hospital equipment. Dr. Eskin also owns the original score, and will donate it at a later date. See also accession 2000.20 (a video tape of the production.)

Medical College of Pennsylvania Records - nursing photographs

[c. 1905-73]
Notes: 26 of the 38 photographs have Archives "P" numbers on them, and were missing from the Archives since at least 1978. It seems that these photographs were given "P" numbers, probably by Ida Draeger, the librarian who maintained historic materials. The Archives was formally established in 1977. Shortly thereafter, someone must have noticed that these images, though noted in Ida's card catalog, were missing. There was a note on each card to this effect. The photos have now been returned, 25 years later - or more, and are now part of this accession. Some are oversized and so are housed with other oversized material.

Bio of Dr. Rowland Ricketts, Sr. from Rowland Ricketts, Jr.'s letter that arrived with the photographs:
He received his BS degree from Hahnemann and his MD and HMD. Several years after graduation, he went to Villanova and received an MA in Liberal Arts. An outstanding organist and pianist, he truly was a Renaissance Man. He worked for a while in practice with Harry Eberhard, MD, and taught at Hahnemann up through 1948. He joined the Veterans Administration, from which he retired, having worked in Togus Maine, Norton Virginia, Wilmington Delaware closing out his full time medical career in Philadelphia, as the Chief Medical Officer. Interestingly, his office was at Broad and Cherry in Philadelphia - a very short walk from Hahnemann. He was very active with his music, and even at 95, he stayed current in anatomy, neuro-anatomy and gastroenterology, reading extensively in these fields. Inventory:
