Research Facts
Louis Pasteur (1822 - 1895) was a French chemist and microbiologist est know for his remarkable breaktrhoughs in the causes and prevention of disease. His experiments supported the germ theory of disease, also reducing mortality from puerperal fever (childbed), and he created the first vaccine for rabies. He was best know to the general public for inventing a method to stop milk and wine from causing sicjness; this process came to be known as "pasteurization".
In the 1950 – 60s this portrait collection was compiled by Dr. Thomas Gibson 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, so those prints that are not dated were attributed to the time period of the compilation, even though the paper appears older than this time frame. 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.

Research Facts
Christopher D. Sclavenitis (in its Greek form, Christophoro D. Sklavenitis) was a sculptor and ceramist in Greece in the 20th century, a member of the Hellenic Chamber of Arts. He created many statues and artistic pieces, including a chess set. He was a student of Modigliani, and made many statues depicting Greek gods and goddesses. Some of his work was featured on the television show Battlestar Galactica.
Aesculapius, or his original Greek name Asklepios, was the Greco-Roman god of medicine, son of Apollo and Princess Coronis. Aesculapius' children include Hygeia, goddess of health, and Panaceia, goddess of healing. Aesculapius was raised and trained in healing by Chiron the centaur. Aesculapius became a powerful and influential healer, eventually becoming able to raise the dead. This angered Zeus, who killed him with a thunderbolt. Influential and important figures in medicine referred to Aesculapius, such as Hippocrates in the first line of the Hippocratic Oath: "I swear by Apollo the physician, and Asclepius, and Hygieia and Panacea and all the gods and goddesses as my witnesses, that, according to my ability and judgement, I will keep this Oath and this contract", and Galen, who was healed in an Aesculapian temple. The snake colied around a staff which he carries is a symbol of medicine to this day, commonly mistaken for a caduceus, which is the wand of Hermes and also used as a medical symbol.
