B. Bernard Weinstein Medal Collection

Description

The Matas Library has a collection of scientific medals issued in honor of individuals or commemorating a momentous event, disease, hospital, school or society. The core of this group of medals were collected by Benjamin Bernard Weinstein, M.D. (1913-1974), a Tulane faculty member and New Orleans physician. His medal collection was donated to the Rudolph Matas Library by the Weinstein family. In addition to the B. Bernard Weinstein collection, the Matas Library maintains the medals and awards of Dr. Rudolph Matas and awards given to other Tulane health scientists and physicians. Highlights of the collection are the replica of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine (1998) medal awarded to Louis J. Ignarro, Tulane faculty (1973-1985) and also the yellow fever medals of Roger Post Ames, 1952-1958.
