Marcia in a Mask

As you may know, Marcia Noyes worked for MedChi for 50 years, from 1896 when she arrived as the librarian hired by Dr. William Osler, until her retirement and death shortly thereafter in 1946. 
By the Spanish Flu epidemic of 1918, she had been here for more than 20 years and was ensconced in the offices on Cathedral Street. With all of the physicians who surrounded her, I know that they cared greatly about her health. 

Of course, we care about your health, and hope that you're wearing your mask when it's appropriate.

  1. Hello Meg, I had faith that Marcia would prove a good role model for us. Tomorrow I can get a few more masks through the government distribution program. They are required in many places here, but in public people are getting more crowded and not wearing their masks.

    By the way, I was disappointed to miss your Baltimore lecture. I signed up for it, but received no instructions and there was no mechanism to actually view it. When I pressed buttons I just got error messages. Is your talk somehow available in a recorded form?
