Research Facts
Albrecht von Haller (1708 - 1777) was a Swiss biologist, the father of experimental physiology, who made prolific contributions to physiology, anatomy, botany, embryology, poetry and scientific bibliography.
In the 1950 – 60s this portrait collection was compiled by Dr. Thomas Gibson, and later by Dr. Etherington, from old publications to create a historical medical gallery of pioneers of modern medical sciences for teaching medical students at Queen’s University, Kingston. Many of these prints do not indicate the date of the publication or source. Original prints are heavily glued to thick paper backing. Prints were framed at Kirkpatrick’s Art & Flower Store in Kingston, Ontario, as noted on the blue paper labels on the reverse.
