On May 13, 2009 the Center for a Healthy Maryland held a celebration to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the dedication of the MedChi Library Building and Osler Hall. More than one hundred guests gathered to honor this important date in the history of Maryland medicine.
The program included an invocation by Rabbi Mark Loeb, greetings from the Deans of the University of Maryland and Johns Hopkins University Schools of Medicine and the benediction and re-dedication of the MedChi Building by His Eminence, William Cardinal Keeler.
Dr. George Bone recounted the 210 years of MedChi history and Mr. Johns Hopkins of Baltimore Heritage Inc. spoke of the historic significance of the MedChi Building and Osler Hall.
Present at the event were representatives from the Office of NIH History and Museum, the National Museum of Dentistry, and the William P. Didusch Center for Urologic History, whose expertise will be an invaluable resource as the History of Maryland Medicine Campaign evolves, culminating in the Maryland Medicine Museum.
