Comments

Records indicate that Dr. and Mrs. Norman E. Mann donated the Mann medical realia collection to the John P. McGovern Historical Collections and Research Center in April of 2001. The collection was heavily damaged by Tropical Storm Allison and the recovered objects vary in condition. Additional material has been added and continues to be added to the collection to supplement the objects lost due to Tropical Storm Allison. It has become a collection to place medical realia without collection.
