View collection description >

These items were located in two offices at Queen Lane: the microscope was in Dr. Schindler's office (in the Dean's Office suite) and the scale and the tissue slicer were in Burt Landau's Office (Medical Education). The microscope was given to Dr. Schindler by Leo Cosio, a former staff member, who had come upon it somewhere in the building. No one knows how the other two items came to be in Dr. Landau's office. Dr. Schindler offered these items for use in the Queen Lane exhibition which opened May 17, 2002. She has decided that they should become part of the Archives collections and so has donated them to the Archives.
