By , September 1, 2012

The spring and summer of 2012 have brought some interesting opportunities for Warren Museum curator Dominic Hall to talk about the Warren’s best known resident, Phineas Gage.

On Friday, August 31st New Hampshire public radio played an interview with Hall by Brady Carlson discussing Gage’s accident and recovery. Gage was from Lebanon, N.H. The story can be heard in full here.

On August 1st Hall is quoted in a story in Claremont, N.H.’s Eagle Times entitled “New research surfaces on famed Cavendish Case.” The article highlights the recent research mapping Gage’s brain connectivity by John Darrell Van Horn at UCLA, published in the open-access journal PLoS One.

Lastly, in the spring, Gage was featured on the Travel Channel’s Mysteries at the Museum. Hall was interviewed on the history and popular culture of the well-known medical case. More on the episode can be found on the Travel Channel’s website. The episode also featured the Smithsonian Institution’s Hope Diamond, the Scripps Institution of Oceanography & Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds, and the North Carolina State Archives and its copy of the Bill of Rights.
