Research Facts
Dr. Bernard Siegfried Weiss (1697-1770) was a German anatomist and taught surgery and anatomy at Leyden from 1719 til his death; considered one of the greatest teachers of anatomy of his era. Introduced the exacting method of accurately depicting anatomical illustration by using a technique of placing nets with square webbing at specified intevals between the artist and the anatomical specimen and copying the images using the grid patterns.
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.

Research Facts
John Shebbeare (1709 - 1788) was a physician and political writer
the last hurrah of medieval medicine in the age of Reason. His theories involved the application of elemental theory to the human body, and his central theme was that once the medical world came to understand the source of energy or 'vitality' that made the human body work, it would understand both the theory and practice of medicine completely.
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.

Research Facts
Matthew Baillie (1766 - 1823) was a Scottish physician and pathologist. Studied anatomy under his uncle, John Hunter. His book: "The Morbid Anatomy of Some of the Most Important Parts of the Human Body" (1793) is considerd the first systematic study of pathology, and the first publication in English on pthology as a separate subject. He is credited with first identifying transpostion of the reat vessels (TGV) and "situs inversus".
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.
