McGovern Medical Medallions

Ready for Research


Archivists at the McGovern Historical Center are proud to announce the availability of the MS 200 John P. McGovern Medical Medallions Collection.

This collection consists of medallions commemorating people, conferences, and other events in the history of medicine.  While many of the these were produced as commemorative items in the 1960s and 1970s, others date back as far as the late 1700s. Collected by John P. McGovern, these medallions came to us by way of the McGovern Foundation.

More than half of the collection consists of medallions from the Great Men of Medicine Art Medals series. The collection has two complete sets—50 in silver and 50 in bronze. These were sculpted by Abram Belskie and distributed by Presidential Art Medals, Inc. of Vandalia, Ohio, from 1969 to 1974. This commemorative series also includes pamphlets describing the medallions and the accomplishments of the figures portrayed.

Visit the McGovern Historical Center website for the complete Medical Medallions collection.
