Join African-American physician Dr. Harvey Middleton on June 24, 1939, in his office at 2101 Boulevard Place for an open house that is being used to introduce family, friends, colleagues and the broader community to the latest in electrocardiographic technology.
While offering essential access to medical assistance to patients who may otherwise have gone without, Dr. Middleton was also pursuing learning opportunities. Check out Dr. Middleton’s consulting room, from his cardiette machine and physician’s license to the examining table and anatomical charts. Ask Dr. Middleton about his upcoming trip to London for further training, the exciting news he received last week, or how he and others are working to make Indianapolis a better place for all its citizens.
You Are There 1939: Healing Bodies, Changing Minds is open now through January 2014. For more information, visit here.
Dr. Middleton’s story is currently featured in the Indiana Humanities Spirit of Competition traveling exhibit.
