The Dittrick Medical History Center is dedicated to the study of the history of medicine through a collection of rare books, museum artifacts, archives, and images. It is housed in the Allen Memorial Medical Library on the campus of Case Western Reserve University. The museum's galleries include Diagnostic Instruments; Doctor's Office 1870's; Doctor's Office 1930's; Early Medical Practice and Education' Hospital Medicine 1865-1920; Laboratory Medicine 1865-1920; Microscopes; Pharmacy 1880's; Obstetrics Instruments; and the HF Aitken collection of biomedical art. A majority of the collection is not displayed in the museum due to space. Instead, this information, such as the collection on smallpox and dermatology as well as other exhibits, can be found online through the website.
