Warren Anatomical Museum

The Warren Anatomical Museum in Boston "is one of the last surviving anatomy and pathology museums associated with a medical school in the United States. The museum was founded in 1847 by Harvard Medical School anatomist and surgeon John Collins Warren in order to teach Harvard Medical School students anatomy. The Warren was designed and implemented to preserve, classify and make accessible the biologic and artificial preparations and models critical for the education of these 19th- and early 20th-century physicians. Until 1999 the Warren was housed in the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology, when it was transferred into the Countway Library's Center for the History of Medicine"1.
