As part of Archives Month Philly, The Historical Medical Library of The College of Physicians of Philadelphia is hosting a special, one-night only exhibit. “Invisible, Not Insignificant” uses the Library’s collection of 19th- and early 20th-century photographs, case books, diaries, and pamphlets to look at ‘invisible’ conditions such as depression, and explores 19th-century asylum life. Please join us for an open house with light refreshments and “Invisible, Not Insignificant.”
