      The Historical Collections Unit of the Lister Hill Library of the Health
      Sciences, UAB
      Announces Reynolds Associates Research Fellowships In the History of the
      Health Sciences for 2002

      The Reynolds Associates in conjunction with the Historical Collections Unit
      of Lister Hill Library, University of Alabama at Birmingham, are pleased to
      announce the availability of short-term grants of up to $1,000 to those
      engaged in research projects for the 2002 calendar year relating to one or
      more aspects of the history of the health sciences.

      Applicants should submit an outline of the proposed project along with an
      abstract (not to exceed 250 words) stating its general scope and purpose.
      All proposals must be accompanied by a budget listing travel and other
      attendant expenses, length of anticipated visit, brief curriculum vitae, and
      two letters of recommendation (preferably from individuals familiar with the
      nature of the applicant's research and scholarly interests). All materials
      must be submitted by December 31, 2001 to receive consideration. Awards will
      be announced by February 28, 2002. Successful applicants will be expected to
      deposit a copy of the finished, manuscript, thesis, dissertation, or
      published work with the Historical Collections Unit.

      The Historical Collections of Lister Hill Library comprise the Alabama
      Museum of the Health Sciences, the University Archives, and the Reynolds
      Historical Library. The Museum holds equipment, instruments, and objects
      that represent the history and development of the health sciences. Among its
      featured holdings are the Nott pathological specimens, nineteen wax
      anatomical models purchased by Dr. Josiah Nott (1804-1873) and originally
      brought to Mobile, Alabama in October of 1860. The scope of the collection
      includes, but is not limited to the fields of medicine, nursing,
      ophthalmology, dentistry, public health, and allied health. The Archives
      contain over 1,500 linear feet of processed materials relating to the
      medical school of the University of Alabama, the University of Alabama at
      Birmingham, the Alabama health science community, and other primary resource
      materials that include personal papers and an extensive collection of
      photographs. The Reynolds Library contains historical materials relating to
      medicine and its allied sciences. The core of this library comprises the
      5,000 titles collected by Dr. Lawrence Reynolds (1889-1961) and officially
      transferred to UAB in 1958. Included in his original library are some 30
      incunabula dating from the 14th century and other medical classics. In
      addition, the Reynolds Library contains an extensive and growing collection
      in Civil War medicine, significant holdings relating to the famous Ohio
      Valley physician Daniel Drake (1785-1852), complete transactions for the
      Southern Surgical Association dating from 1888, and many other valuable
      research materials. For further information on the collections, prospective
      applicants are invited to visit the Historical Collections Web site at
