$1.3M Gift Will Support Digital Upgrade of Johns Hopkins Medical Archives
From The Hub:
Mario Molina, president of the Golden Shore Medical Group and trustee of Johns Hopkins Medicine, has donated $1.3 million to help launch a major digital upgrade of the Johns Hopkins Alan Mason Chesney Medical Archives. The gift, which commemorates the 40th anniversary of the archives, will also help fund the development of exhibits and refurbishment of the archives’ reference and conference areas.
Established in 1978 under the direction of Thomas Turner, the medical archives are the official repository for the historical records and cultural properties of Johns Hopkins medicine, nursing, and public health. The Johns Hopkins Hospital and the Johns Hopkins University schools of medicine, nursing, and public health jointly fund the archives program. Over the past 40 years, the archives have evolved into one of the leading archival centers for research into the history of the health fields from the late 19th century to the present.
