Central Institute for the Deaf Centennial Exhibit

Dr. Max A. Goldstein established the Central Institute for the Deaf (CID) in 1914. He believed that deaf children should be regarded not only as clinical entities, but as individuals whose education, social, and economic needs demanded professional and community attention. Under his leadership, the Institute organized an effective cooperation between teachers, otologists, and researchers to offer education to deaf students of all ages to provide a lifetime of communicating and learning.  When it opened in 1914, CID was the first fully dedicated auditory-oral school for deaf children in “the west”.  Today, CID continues to provide a unique combination of education and community service to benefit children who are deaf and hard of hearing.

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). 


The Becker Archives Digital Content Organization Plan (BADCOP) outlines the file-naming convention used for all digital content maintained by the Bernard Becker Medical Library Archives at the Washington University School of Medicine.  The primary purpose of implementing BADCOP is to provide a unique identifying filename for digital reproductions and files consistent with the arrangement and description of the file’s parent collection.  BADCOP ensures a systematic arrangement of digital content in such a way that archivists can easily locate specific files when they need them.
