The University of Cincinnati’s Proudly Cincinnati Campaign includes efforts to raise $3.7 million for the Henry R. Winkler Center for the History of the Health Professions, one of the premier medical and health history centers in the United States. The Winkler Center is located in the Donald C. Harrison Health Sciences Library in the heart of UC’s Academic Health Center campus.
This campaign is focused on completing the Winkler Center’s new facility to provide a sound environment for its unique and nationally recognized collections, including more than 35,000 volumes, dating from 1500 A.D., on the history of medicine and 70 archives of prominent medical figures, including Albert B. Sabin, M.D., who developed the live oral polio vaccine at UC. The campaign will also raise funds to endow an archivist and provide a robust operating budget.
The Winkler Center, which is named for UC President Emeritus Henry R. Winkler, operates solely on gift and endowed funds. Dr. John J. McDonough, noted hand surgeon, is Chair of the Advisory Board for the Winkler Center, and Dr. Winkler is co-chair.
