Erica Reiner and the history of medicine
- From the May-June 2010 University of Chicago Magazine:
"In December 2009 the University Library announced it was buying 3,500 rare books from Rush University Medical Center, a purchase made possible by the bequest of late Oriental Institute professor Erica Reiner PhD '55. Among the collection, dating from 1500 to the mid-1900s editions of Hippocrates and Galen's writings, a volume on botanical medicine, and the first work on plastic surgery." --Jake Grubman, '11
