The Warren Museum, curator Dominic Hall, and several associated Center for the History of Medicine artifacts and preparations were featured in the November 22, 2011 episode of Boston’s WCBV TV 5’s Chronicle HD. The four segment episode focused on the highlights and unique findings along Boston’s Huntington Avenue.

The Warren Museum and the Center for the History of Medicine were featured in the fourth segment of the program. In addition to an interview with Dominic Hall regarding the Museum overall, the episode explored the traumatic brain injury of Phineas Gage [WAM 00949], sheep lung surfactant that Harvard professor Mary Ellen Avery used to treat infant RDS [WAM 20451], leg braces from a Massachusetts polio survivor [WAM 20456], and a Codman & Surtleff bullet probe that was unsuccessfully used to locate the assassin’s bullet lodged in President James Garfield’s spine [WAM 20342].

The Chronicle HD program can be viewed in full or by segment on the WCBV website.
[As of December 9th, the Chronicle website no longer had the Huntington Avenue program available on its website. Sorry for the inconvenience.]
