Item Description

  • Elon H. Clark (left) and Tom Jones during Jones' visit to Duke University. Elon Clark said that Tom Jones was "a world famous medical artist, second only to Max Brodel." In the background is a model of an infant's head and Clark's drawing of Frederic Moir Hanes. Elon H. Clark was director and professor of the Division of Medical Art of the Duke University School of Medicine from 1934 to 1974. In 1935 he led a service-oriented research program that concentrated on the development of improved cosmetic prostheses, particularly facial restorative devices like ears and noses. Clark was especially involved in training a local staff of medical artists and worked to extend continuing education opportunities in the medical arts to students in the southeastern United States. He was a charter member of the Association of Medical Illustrators. The Division of Medical Art later came to be known as the Division of Educational Media Services, which provides audiovisual support and expertise to the Duke University community.
