DESCRIPTION OF COLLECTION:

Dr. John Adams, Professor Emeritus of the University of Saskatchewan College of Medicine, Canada, worked extensively with Media Solutions (University of Utah) to digitize and transfer to Slice of Life VII over 1600 images taken from the William Boyd Slide Collection of Diseased Human Organs.

These stunning, one-of-a-kind, hand-tinted photographs are oganized by twelve systems and are described by patient histories, specimen descriptions, autopsy findings, and cross-references to the original Boyd Museum Collection acquisition numbers and their corresponding Kodak Photo CD discs.

Dr. William Boyd, according to the Sunnybrook Health Science Centre at the University of Toronto, was world renowned as an educator:

Twenty six editions of his books were published. He loved teaching undergraduates. He was a prodigious speaker, averaging one engagement per month for his entire professional career. His greatest gift as a teacher was the unique capacity of simplifying the complex, clarifying the confusing, and bringing excitement to the scholarly study of Medicine.

TRIBUTE:

It is with regret that we note the passing of Dr. Adams in May of 1996 just prior to the release of the Slice of Life VII videodisc. It was his passion to revive the Boyd Collection for the benefit of future educators and students.

We are delighted to have worked with him and are proud to include these educational materials in the Slice of Life for the medical community to share.

Dr. John Harling (curator of the William Boyd Collection in the Health Sciences Museum, Okanagan University College, Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada) had these words to say:

January 1997, OUC Journal: A valuable collection of 1,872 case study cards derived from the work of Dr. William Boyd, probably the most famous of all pathology educators, has been bequeathed to the Health Sciences Museum. The collection, known as the William Boyd Collection, was part of the estate of Dr. John Adams, Professor Emeritus of Pathology, University of Saskatchewan, who retired to Kelowna in 1975.

Adams had a distinguished career as a pathology and allied health educator, who was best known for his contributions to the pedagogical methodologies used in biocommunication in the health sciences. Honory curator of the collection is Dr. John Harling of OUC, who was a close associate of Dr. Adams' during his retirement in Kelowna.

This collection is unique in Canada -- a testament to the painstaking work of Boyd and Adams, two Canadian pathology education innovators.
