In December, I embarked on a two and a half hour road trip from Pittsburgh to Cleveland with my friend Marilyn. Our destination was the Dittrick Medical History Center at Case Western University. We were met there by co-curators Catherine Osborn and Brandy Schillace. Catherine was kind enough to give us a private tour of the museum.
The two major collections we viewed were the childbirth collection, Re-conceiving Birth: Our Shared Entrance to the World Stage and the contraception collection, Percy Skuy Collection on the History of Contraception.
I could have spent days there. The depth and breadth of the collection is inspiring. I will make a return trip once the weather is a bit warmer.
