On the Origin of Species: A treasure of the P. I. Nixon Medical Historical Library

The Origin of Species by Charles Darwin

The Origin of Species by Charles Darwin

Did you know that the P.I. Nixon Medical Historical Library owns a rare first edition of Charles Darwin’s On the Origin of Species by Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life?  Published in 1859, the library’s fragile volume is a treasure. The valuable first editions with iconic green spines are in high demand for book collectors and science lovers.  The library’s copy, one of only approximately 1,250 printed, is part of a collection of antiquarian texts originally donated to the the University of Texas Health Science Center in the early 1970’s by the Bexar County Medical Society.

The Witte Museum is currently hosting the American Museum of Natural History’s Darwin exhibit Darwin: How One Man’s Theory Turned the World on its Head. It runs through September 3, 2012 and includes Darwin’s handwritten journals of his observations while on the Galapagos Islands.  For additional resources for children and families, visit the American Museum of National History’s Resources for Darwin.

Darwin’s complete works can also be read online.

To view the Health Science Center’s first edition of On the Origin of Species, or any of the other 5,000 rare and historical texts, contact Special Projects Librarian Susan Hunnicutt at (210) 567-2406 or hunnicutt@uthscsa.edu; or Mellisa DeThorne at 210-567-2470 or dethorne@uthscsa.edu.  Additional and selected materials from the Nixon Library may also be viewed online in the UTHSC Digital Archives / Historical Collection.

Reach Out and Read: Physician Assistant program is collecting books for children

Each year one-third of all children entering kindergarten lack the basic skills needed to learn to read.  By fourth grade, most of these children who were initially behind in reading will not catch up with their peers.  Juvenile delinquency, absenteeism, polysubstance abuse, and school failure have all been shown to have an association with poor reading skills in childhood.  These statements, from the evidence base for Reach Out and Read, highlight the importance promoting literacy skills in children before they begin elementary school.

In light of these staggering statistics, this year Reach Out and Read was selected as the Texas Academy of Physician Assistants (TAPA) President’s Project.  TAPA President Lauren Dobbs chose Reach Out and Read because it is a national, non-profit organization that trains medical providers to counsel parents during well-child visits on the importance of reading aloud to their children.  Reach Out and Read also provides children’s books to participating pediatric clinics to be given out every six months for the child’s first five years of life.

During this year’s National Physician Assistant (PA) Week, October 6th through 12th, the seven Physician Assistant education programs in Texas will be competing to see which program can collect the most books for Reach Out and Read.  Faculty, staff and students at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio are encouraged to donate new or used children’s books (ages 6 months to 5 years old).  All books collected will be donated to the Center for Children and Families, a Reach Out and Read-participating clinic.  Donation bins will be located in the Dolph Briscoe Library, 3rd floor lobby, Texas Star Café, Research Administration Building lobby and the Christus Santa Rosa Professional Pavilion Suite 1295.  To make arrangements for a special pick-up, please e-mail Amanda Miller at millera4@livemail.uthscsa.edu.

Summer reading recommendations

 

Rajia Tobia recommends Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen by Christopher McDougall:  “I am not a runner so when a tri-athlete friend recommended this book, I was skeptical.  Why would anyone want to run ultra-marathons of 100 miles or more in places like Death Valley and Mexico’s Copper Canyon?  This book answered the question for me – they are all obsessed!   Starting with the simple question -why does my foot hurt? – Christopher McDougall in Born to Run explores the physiology of running, running’s place in human evolution, the commercialization of running as a sport, and the psychology and unique individualism of ultra-runners.  The book also explores Mexico’s Tarahumara Indians and their techniques of happily running hundreds of miles without rest or injury.  This book is an interesting and entertaining read, even if you are not a runner.”

 

Sarah's Key- book coverKatie Prentice recommends Sarah’s Key by Tatiana de Rosnay: “The story of Sarah’s Key centers around July 1942 when Jewish families in Paris, France were rounded up and transported to concentration camps by French authorities.  The book weaves the story of a modern French family with the story of young Sarah whose family at one time lived in the same apartment.  The book alternates 1942 with the present in each chapter and offers insight into the experiences of a child living through traumatic events.  The book is a fairly easy read and a movie came out in 2010.  I haven’t seen the movie yet, but now that I’ve read the book I plan to see the movie.”

 

 

1491 - book coverSusan Hunnicutt recommends 1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus, by Charles C. Mann:  “This book explores current thinking about the cultural histories of native American peoples.  They are much richer and more complicated than I ever imagined! One example that was very interesting to me was Mann’s discussion of milpas, companion plantings of corn, squash and beans, also known as “Three Sisters”.  Most of us learned part of this story in elementary school.  But Mann says the milpas show the extent of communication that took place in the ancient Americas, because by the time Europeans arrived variations of the technique, which was developed in what is today Mexico, had spread across North America to the mid-Atlantic coast.”
