History of William Beaumont

August 15 @ 6:30 pm - 12:00 am

Event Navigation

Dr. Timothy Orphanides will lecture on the history of William Beaumont (1785-1853) a physician who studied the digestive process through a permanent hole in his patient's stomach (Alexis St. Martin) formed by a gunshot wound. The presentation is part of the Pylon Medical History Lecture Series. Sculpted by the late Milton Horn, the pylons of WVU Health Sciences Center are an iconic representation of art, history, and education in the form of seven foot marble pillars. The originals are housed at Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown and a replica set are displayed at WVU Charleston Division. A third set will be unveiled in Martinsburg on August 16. The lecture series will discuss each scene of the pylon and its relationship to the history of medicine.
