Join us for a lecture by Dr. Jeffrey Elsbery and Dr. Jacob H. Goldberger from the Museum of Medical History at Florida SouthWestern State College. They will be discussing the Buckingham Hospital and Air Corps Training Center during World War II and its impact on medicine in Southwest Florida. Of note, the Naples airport started as a satellite base of Buckingham. They will also talk about the development of their museum, which covers the practice of medicine in Southwest Florida from the mid-1800s to the 1970s. The museum is the home of one of the most extensive and eclectic collections of instruments, equipment, documents, and medical educational materials in the State of Florida.
