P.I. Nixon Medical Historical Library Hosts Japanese Dental Students

On August 11, 2015, twelve students and faculty members from Japanese Dental Schools toured the P.I. Nixon Medical Historical Library. Their visit was part of the Japanese Exchange Program sponsored each August by the School of Dentistry at the UT Health Science Center at San Antonio. Eight treasures from the rare book collection were on display, including dental classics, The Natural History of the Human Teeth, 1778 by John Hunter and The History and Treatment of the Diseases of the Teeth, 1806 by Joseph Fox.
