Written by
Finley lecture libraryA gift from Sara J. Finley and Randall W. Finley, M.D., honors their father, Dr. Wayne H. Finley, professor emeritus, genetics pioneer, and avid medical historian, by adding the Finley name to the Reynolds Historical Library and Reynolds Historical Lectureship.

On Friday, March 6, at 4 p.m. at Volker Hall Lecture Room E, the Finley family will be recognized at the 36th annual lecture—now known as the Reynolds-Finley Historical Lecture—featuring Bert Hansen, Ph.D., professor of history at the City University of New York. His talk is titled “Louis Pasteur and the Pleasures of Art.” (1 hour of AMA PRA Category 1 credit is available.)

Located on the third floor of Lister Hill Library of the Health Sciences, the newly renamed Reynolds-Finley Historical Library holds more than 13,000 rare books and manuscripts pertaining to the history of medicine and science. The Finley name has also been added to an endowment for the continued enhancement and expansion of the collection. Click here to learn more.
