BCL-CSL Commemorative Painting by Lewis J. Thomas, Jr., MD

BCL-CSL Commemorative Painting

In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the founding of two computer labs at Washington University, Lewis J. Thomas, Jr., M.D. completed this painting (oil and acrylic on canvas, 48”x36”) in May of 2013. This painting depicts the interactive laboratory computing that began in 1964 at the Washington University Medical School (WUMS).  The background depicts the console and early keyboard of the LINC (Laboratory Instrument Computer).  The LINC stimulated the founding of two computer labs at WUMS, both in the old Shriners’ Hospital Building: the Biomedical Computer Lab (BCL) and Computer Research Lab (CRL), later renamed the Computer Systems Lab (CSL).
