MAS Context Fall talks
Change of location



Due to the water damage suffered by the Charnley-Persky House, the remaining three MAS Context 2014 Fall talks will be hosted by the International Museum of Surgical Science. The Museum is located at 1524 North Lake Shore Drive, Chicago, IL 60610.

The talks affected take place on Tuesday October 7 (Molly Wright Steenson), Tuesday November 11 (Alison Fisher), and Tuesday December 2 (David Schalliol).

The International Museum of Surgical Science is located in a historic lakeside mansion constructed in 1917 under the careful direction of Eleanor Robinson Countiss to house her family. Her father, an executive of the Diamond Match Company, generously provided the home building fund. One of the few remaining lakefront mansions, and the only one open to the public, the building received historic status in 1988, and is listed in the National Register and the Illinois Register of Historic Places and is a City of Chicago Landmark.
