Welch Rabbits

Max Brödel, the early 20th century medical illustrator at Johns Hopkins, had an excellent sense of humor. I frequently find his illustrations in our journals, and they’re so beautifully done.

In honor of Easter later this week, I thought this was a perfect one to post. Brodel

It’s a caricature of the famed William Welch, MD, cigar in hand, leading his students who are portrayed as rabbits. I am sure that the faces on the rabbits are perfect sketches of Welch’s students at the time. It’s too bad that there isn’t a way of knowing who’s who!
