The University of Iowa History of Medicine Society and Iowa Women’s Archives present Jennifer Gunn, History of Medicine Endowed Professor, Director of the Institute for Advanced Study, University of Minnesota. Dr. Gunn’s talk is titled “Injections, Itches, and Institutions: The Experience of Rural Medicine in Iowa, 1910-1950.”

Clara Skott was an Iowa farm wife living in South Dakota during the 1918 influenza pandemic. She received a series of injections to save off the flu. In 1918, the hypodermic needle was a symbol of modern medical practice.
Iowa doctors’ ledger books show hypos were a staple of their treatments. The records do not always indicate what was in the hypo. Clara was given a homegrown influenza vaccine. Some patients received barbiturates, vitamins, or placebos. $1.00 per injection was beyond the reach of many Iowans.
Gunn will explore county doctors’ practices and the range of ways rural Iowans handled health issues in the first half of the 20th century.

Just Living, the University of Iowa’s Spring 2016 Theme Semester on social justice, will explore values, beliefs, and positioning by examining our past and looking to our future. Main and Hardin Libraries are partnering with the Just Living theme semester committee on a video project using the library One Button Studios. Throughout the spring semester students, faculty, staff and community members can use the One Button Studio to record themselves speaking about what social justice means to them.
Prompts for your video:
- What does social justice mean to you?
- How are you Just Living?
- Why do you need social justice?
At the end of each month, videos created will be combined and displayed on the Just Living website.
Hardin Library will have a table staffed with someone from the Writing Center and someone from the Speech Center, someone to assist using the studio, and free popcorn on Friday, January 22, from 11am-1pm.
Future events include:
- Tuesday, February 22nd from 4-6pm at the Main Library
- Thursday, March 10th from 11am-1pm at the Main Library
- Wednesday, April 20th from 4-6pm at Hardin Library

Charles Estienne (1504-1564). De dissectione partium corporis humani libri tres. : Apud Simonem Colinaeum, 1545.
Estienne was a member of the famous Estienne family of printers. He received his medical degree from the University of Paris in 1542, but had been at work on this anatomical magnum opus for many years, as some of the plates are dated 1530 and 1531.
This magnificent folio (oversized) volume is one of the finest of all anatomical treatises. Certainly it was the finest printed in France in the 16th Century. The 62 full-page woodcuts, artistically present the anatomical subjects in special poses before unusual background settings. The anatomy itself is pre-Vesalian in conception and far from being as accurate as Vesalius. Some of the plates show diseased as well as normal anatomy.
You may view this book in the John Martin Rare Book Room, Hardin Library for the Health Sciences. Make a gift to the Hardin Library for the Health Sciences by donating online or setting up a recurring gift with The University of Iowa Foundation.
