Series 2: Pathological slides

Scope and Contents note

Lantern slides of removed human organs, most in advanced stages of disease. Often patient's names are included in the title, along with the organ and name of disease. Each slide is marked with the exposure time, suggesting that Wightman was just as interested in learning from the process of photographing these organs as in the resulting image. These slides were taken after 1898, as some are marked as property of "Dr. Wightman."
