Biographical/historical note

William Medway, clinical educator and researcher in aquatic medicine, was born on February 23, 1927, in Manitoba, Canada. He earned his B.S. from the University of Manitoba in 1947, his DVM from Ontario Veterinary College in 1954, and his Ph. D. from Cornell University in 1958 (where he focused on water metabolisms in domestic fowl). In 1959, Medway began teaching clinical laboratory medicine at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine and was the director of their veterinary hospital from 1958 to 1960. Medway worked in the Ontario Veterinary College's department of physiological sciences from 1960 to 1962, when he returned to the University of Pennsylvania's veterinary hospital and served as its director of the clinical laboratory until 1979. He retired from the university in 1988, and continued to be active in the veterinary community by serving on the United States Marine Mammal Commission Committee of Scientific Advisors until 1995. Dr. Medway died on March 19, 2006.

Arrangement

This collection is arranged alphabetically.

Photographic slides were originally housed in slide containers, including boxes and carousels/trays. The containers were artificially numbered, the slides were removed, and containers were then described as fully as possible. Some descriptions originated with Medway, including "manatees," "pinnipeds," and "cetaceans," but the remainder were derived from the containers' contents.

Access to the collection

Collection is open for research; access requires at least 48 hours advance notice. Because of the nature of certain archival formats, including digital and audio-visual materials, access will require additional advanced notice. Copies of digital files may be provided for use in the SCRC Reading Room upon request.
