Instructor: Dr. Gordon Dammann
The creation of the National Museum of Civil War Medicine started as the idea of Gordon E. Dammann, D.D.S., whose collection of medical artifacts from the Civil War forms the core of the museumâ€™s holdings. He began collecting in 1972 and felt a museum would be a good way to share his collection. Dammann is the author of the three-volume Pictorial Encyclopedia of Civil War Medical Instruments and Equipment, co-author of Images of Civil War Medicine-A Photographic History, and editor of the reprint Memoirs of Jonathan Letterman, MD Surgeon of US Army 1861-1864.
