The Museum of Vision is pleased to present these brief biographies in an effort to increase knowledge and share findings. It is our hope that these will provide further insight into the history of ophthalmology. We encourage you to add information and thoughts through our Community Forum.
The Oral History Collection contains formal interviews, self-recorded reminiscences and informal conversations. Our goal has always been to gather memories, experiences and insights from individuals whose lives are an inspiration. Listed here are all participants in the Oral History Collection. Highlighted selections are available on-line. Click here for more information about the collection.
The Legacy Project
In 1999 the Senior Ophthalmologist Committee of the American Academy of Ophthalmology was inspired to find families with multiple generations of ophthalmologists and tell their stories. Today the Legacy Project is retained in the Academy Archives. There are two publications, one a list of 2 generation families and one a list of 3 or more generations of ophthalmologists in one family.
