The Winkler Center is proud to announce the publication of The Jewish Hospital & Cincinnati Jews In Medicine by Dr. Frederic Krome; Dr. Krome is an Associate Professor of History at the UC Clermont campus.

While Dr. Krome utilized many collections on or relating to Jewish Hospital in libraries and archives throughout the Cincinnati area, the bulk of his research and the majority of photographs utilized in the book stemmed from the Winkler Center’s extensive collection.

Also, in 2012, Dr. Krome presented on the history of the medical tradition within the Cincinnati Jewish community at the third annual Cecil Striker Society lecture series; a video of Dr. Krome’s presentation is now streaming through the Winkler Center website and is accessible by clicking on the photograph below.
