WIN and the WMC/MCP Archives and Special Collections

Thanks to the efforts of Sandra Levison, WIN material is now archived at the Archives and Special Collections on Women in Medicine ( The Special Collections on the national and international history of women in medicine is fittingly held at Drexel University, the home of the first Women's Medical College and the Medical College of Pennsylvania (WMC/MCP). The mission of the WMC/MCP Archives and Special Collections is to "identify, collect, preserve, and make accessible records and artifacts that have historical, administrative, legal, fiscal, and intrinsic value" reflecting the history of women in medicine. This special collection started in the 18th Century and includes the correspondence and documents of alumnae and women physicians, including the pioneers of women in medicine, as well as from the presidents, deans and faculty of the WMC/MCP. Also included in the archives are oral histories of women in medicine, records of women's hospitals throughout the U.S., photographs of women performing surgery dating from the 19th century, and national and international records of women's medical organizations, like WIN!
