Living History

AAA’s Living History Project documents the professional lives of prominent anatomists by creating a recorded interview discussing their lives and careers in an effort to preserve their memories for future generations.

Videos are conducted by colleagues of the anatomists profiled and are approximately an hour long. In addition to the videos, Living History profiles include brief biographies, photos and the CVs of the interviewees.
