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.
Please stop by the display case in the Peters-Jones building, near the Clermont College Library, during October to see featured materials on Jewish history. The display focuses on the in-depth history of the Jewish faith and development of Jewish culture. The collection has many informative works presenting the major geographical, cultural, and political forces that have determined the course of Jewish history while introducing the many individuals, who have shaped the character, mindset, and prospects of the Jewish people.
Most items are available for check out. Give your request to the library staff and they will pull the book for you! Thank you to Professor Frederic Krome for use of his materials on lend from his personal collection.
