OHSU lecture on Dr. Equi now online

We are just 2 days back from our Portland trip, and OHSU has already made the presentation available online. RealPlayer is required to view it; if you don't have it, download it here (it's free and really quite painless). If you have RealPlayer, click here for the OHSU History of Medicine lecture series and then choose our presentation, which is at the top of the list for now: May 12, 2006 - Michael Helquist - "KAJ Mackenzie, Marie Equi, and the Oregon Doctor Train: Portland's response to the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake."

Michael offers this introductory note to his OHSU lecture on Marie Equi:

This "narrative with slides" was prepared for the Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU) History of Medicine Lecture Series. The primary audience for the presentation was the OHSU medical community -- faculty, students, staff. Several of the volunteer doctors mentioned in this presentation were graduates or faculty of the University of Oregon Medical School (which would later become OHSU) in April of 1906. Therefore, the presentation emphasizes the contributions of these individuals, including Dr. Marie Equi.

My introductory note is that you'll briefly hear from Prof. Allan Hunter, who introduced Michael. Once Michael starts, the audio improves. It lasts about an hour. If you check it out, let us know what you think!
