At Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, there is now a collection of more than 2,000 brain tumors, together with microscopic preparations and clinical and follow-up records of the cases. This unique collection of specimens and records is a result of many years of surgical work and research carried on by Dr. Harvey Cushing at the Peter Bent Brigham Hospital in Boston. Recently about 50,000 pages of records that deal with these tumors were made by means of the Leica camera and cinema-film methods, and transferred to New Haven, with the permission of the Peter Bent Brigham Hospital Board. Thus there is available for study at Yale not only these tumors and their histologic preparations but the clinical records, the subsequent correspondence and the accounts of follow-up examinations of the patients, which continue to be added to the records as the years go by.
