Exhibit: When Ye Hard Work is Done
“When Ye Hard Work is Done”: Student Life at Woman’s Medical College of Pennsylvania and Hahnemann University, 1850 – 1962
When Ye Hard Work is Done draws on photographs and objects from the Drexel University College of Medicine (DUCOM) Legacy Center to provide a sense of student life in the early years of these two institutions, the Woman’s Medical College and Hahnemann University. The title of the exhibit, “When Ye Hard Work is Done,” is taken from one of several 1901 poems by Woman’s Medical College graduate Martha Tracy, who chronicled her experiences as a medical student in a booklet she titled, “Ye Medical Student’s Primer,” which is featured in the exhibit.
This exhibit is currently being featured at Hahnemann Library.
