History of the UVA Health System Exhibit

Exhibit PanelOne of the Health Sciences Library’s permanent exhibits recently received some much needed love and care. Since 2001, the exhibit “Celebrating 100 Years. A Legacy of Care. A Framework for the Future.” has hung in a heavily-used corridor near the hospital’s main cafeteria. The exhibit tells the history of the University of Virginia Health System and features historic images from the library’s collections.

At the beginning of 2014, it was clear that the exhibit panels, which had yellowed and faded after 13 years of permanent display, needed to be replaced. Also, it was clear that the exhibit needed to be updated with a new panel that tells the history of the health system in the 21st century. Over a period of several months, members of the library’s Historical Collections department, Janet Pearson and Joan Echtenkamp Klein, worked on this project with the Health System’s Marketing Communications Department and Gropen Inc.

The refreshed and updated exhibit now hangs near the main cafeteria. If you are ever in that vicinity, make sure to visit it and learn more about the rich history of the UVA Health System.

Earlier this summer, Historical Collections made the news when two brothers visited the library to see the wedding dress worn by their mother, Lt. Hilda “Frankie” Franklin. Franklin was a 1938 graduate of UVA’s Nursing School and a member of the 8th Evacuation Hospital, the medical unit sponsored by UVA during World War II. During her service with the 8th Evac., Franklin spent time in North Africa and Italy, endured icy winters, tended patients from the frontlines, and met Capt. Richard P. Bell Jr., a doctor and fellow UVA alumnus (School of Medicine, 1938). At the end of the war, Hilda Franklin and Richard Bell were married in Italy, surrounded by their 8th Evac. colleagues. Due to wartime shortages, materials like silk were hard to come by, but Franklin was determined to have a dress for her wedding. Writing to her friend, Vivian Gibbs, in 1945, Franklin announced, “I have the material for my dress and it is beautiful—white silk nylon—a friend of ours got it for me—use your imagination and you can guess what it is.” [1] (more…)
