This collection of medical artifacts consists of various instruments and equipment given to the Robert B. Greenblatt, MD Library’s Historical Collections and Archives (HCA) over the course of many years. The exact provenance of most of the items is not known, and of the items with unknown provenance, it is the general belief of the current HCA staff that these items were used by Medical College of Georgia faculty and/or alumni.
