Here is another person that would LOVE to talk with you about the medical side
of illustration.

Ranice W. Crosby

She was a student of Max Brodel and is still working at The Johns Hopkins
University School of Medicine, Department of Art as Applied to Medicine.

She is the historian and the Brodel archivist at the department, and the
co-author of the book: Max Brodel: The Man Who Put Art Into Medicine.

Her address is:

Another person who has done extensive work on the history of medical
illustration is Anne Altemus at NLM. I think she is on this list serve so she
should reply (Hi there Anne!)
