About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Starling Medical School graduate

Starling Medical School graduate

This is the class of 1898 my great-great Grandfather (Frank L. Keeler) is the one in all black, second from the left. Starling Medical School became part of Ohio State University's Medical School around 1914. My Grandfather later practiced medicine in Oklahoma, when it was still a territory, and then moved his family to Miami. View full size.

Another relative of Dr. Frank L. Keeler

Frank L. Keeler was my grandfather, lived a long and colorful life. The hospital where he practiced in Miami has been preserved as "the Alamo'" in the middle of Jackson Memorial Hospital grounds. Some of his instruments and his doctor black bag are in the museum there. Dana's grandmother was my first cousin.

The case of Phineas Gage

For research involving the famous medical case of Phineas Gage, we would be very grateful for any information related to Starling Medical College between 1856 and 1865, especially student Henry Trevitt (graduated MD 1860) and Prof. J.W. Hamilton. We would particularly like names, class notes, information on courses of study, academic records, letters, diaries, etc of students and instructors.

Thank you.
