The brain specimens were originally located in the Department
of Neurophysiology (now the Department of Physiology) at the Madison Campus of The University of
Wisconsin. The University Campus is less than a mile from the
State Capitol. The Department of Physiology is in the School of Medicine and Public Health and the brain collection facilities were located on the
second floor of the Medical Sciences Bldg. All the normal specimens
were stored in metal slide boxes on shelves in a room adjacent
to the Histological facility.
The Brain Collection Room was equipped with microscopes
and projectors which allowed users to view the histological details.
Those who wished to examine the slides in the Wisconsin library
of sectioned brains would visit the Wisconsin Facility by arranging
for a visit ahead of time with Wally Welker. The histologists were Inge Siggelkow,
Jo Ann Ekleberry and Joan Meister.
