Turning Thirty: Pictures
A picture is, as the
saying goes, worth
a thousand words.
So here are 15,000

issues. The reasons
we chose them
vary. Some are
timeless in their
Some are amusingly
dated. And some
tell a fascinating
story (together with
a few actual words).
Included here are a selection of
photographs—nearly all of them ones
taken especially for this magazine—that have appeared in our pages in

Winter 1991: Piles of pillows and
clocks were among the countless items
transferred from Hanover when the
new Lebanon DHMC campus opened.
Fall 1990: Every graduate feels on

Spring 1986 (left), Fall 2005 (above):
Computing then (cardiologist Jim Bell at
an original-issue Mac) and now (an oncall
resident, center, checks some scans.
Fall 2003 (above): If painter James Whistler

titled A Study in Black and White?
Winter 1995 (left): Four years after the move to Lebanon, the old hospital in Hanover
bit the dust. A parking lot and an undergraduate dormitory now occupy the site.
