Subject: Upcoming event: Breaking News in Benjamin Rush History - 9/8 at 1:30

*posted on behalf of Barbara Cavanaugh and Penn’s Biomedical Library*

Please join us for a special virtual event on Sept. 8th at 1:30pm:

Benjamin Rush biographer and Penn faculty member Stephen Fried will
discuss new access to Rush’s writings, the nascent Rush Papers Project
by Penn Libraries and the Library Company of Philadelphia, and the
Penn Libraries’ evolving Benjamin Rush Portal which unifies and makes
accessible original Rush source materials. This includes a section on
the 1793 Yellow Fever epidemic, which of course has special interest
in current times. It's possible to follow Rush's writings on the
epidemic as it unfolded.

Fried will describe how the Portal has blossomed thanks to the work of
Yen Ho, a library science intern at the Penn Libraries Biomedical
Library working under his guidance.

Best regards to everyone,
