Halsted, Cushing and Young operating Featured January Print

Halsted, Cushing and Young operating

Halsted, Cushing and Young operating. Pioneering American surgeons William Halsted (1852-1922), Harvey Cushing (1869-1939) and Hugh Hampton Young (1897-1941) operating on a patient at John Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore, USA, with physicians and students watching. Halsted was one of the four founding physicians of John Hopkins Hospital, which opened in 1889. He introduced aseptic technique and the Halstedian approach to surgery, which emphasised the careful handling of human tissue, control of bleeding and anatomically accurate dissection and suturing of tissue. Cushing was a skilful brain surgeon who pioneered several important techniques, including the control of blood pressure during surgery. Young specialised in genito-urinary surgery, performing the first surgery for the treatment of prostate cancer. Photographed circa 1903-1904

Hydra constellations, 1829

Hydra constellations. 19th-century map of stars and constellations from the celestial atlas Sozviezdiia Predstavlennyia na XXX Tablitsakh (1829) by Kornelius Reissig, an Associate Member of the Russian Academy Sciences in St. Petersburg.

The constellations are labelled in Cyrillic, represented by mythological figures and animals. This is Plate 26, showing the constellations of Hydra (female water snake), Sextens (sextant), Antlia (air pump), Felis (cat), and Pyxis (mariner's compass)

Charles Babbage, caricature

Charles Babbage (1791-1871). Caricature of the English mathematician Charles Babbage. Babbage is best known for his pioneering work on programmable computers. Believing that a machine could calculate and produce numerical tables more quickly and reliably than the human computers of the time, Babbage designed the Difference Engine to compute values of polynomial functions. After this, Babbage drew plans for an Analytical Engine which could be programmed using punch cards. Neither engine was built to completion until 1991, when London's Science Museum build a Difference Engine from Babbage's plans. Despite this, Babbage was awarded the Royal Astronomical Society's Gold Medal for his Difference Engine, which would have been able to generate mathematical
