The Becker Library is very pleased to announce a new exhibit A Legacy of Achievement: Washington University School of Dental Medicine is now open in the newly renovated Glaser Gallery on the 7th floor of the library. This exhibit features artifacts, documents, books, and photos from the Dental School, as well as rare books from Becker Library’s Henry J. McKellops Collection in Dental Medicine.
The university’s Dental School, which closed in 1991, had a long and proud history. The School originated as the Missouri Dental College in 1866. In its 125 years of existence, the school changed both its name and its location several times, yet always retained its commitment to the advancement of dental education and dentistry as a profession.
The exhibit will be on display September 15, 2016 through January 2017.
