Recently, the Archives & Special Collections of the A.C. Long Health Sciences Library at CUMC announced that 84 years of the Columbia dental school's bulletins and yearbooks, from 1908 to 1992, have been digitized and are now online. The first 14 years of these publications come from the College of Dental & Oral Surgery of New York, which became the School of Dental and Oral Surgery at Columbia in 1922. The variety of cover design alone is worth taking the trip back through time, but photos and commentary of past professors and students, as well as decades of advertisements for the dental armamentarium, will entertain all readers.
There were no yearbooks published during the war years, 1943-45.
The digitization was made possible with the assistance of a generous grant from the Metropolitan Library Council of New York.
