This book was first published on the fiftieth anniversary celebration of the Duke Medical Center as the most appropriate time to share this valuable, historic, and fascinating document with all Duke alumni and friends. The Duke Medical Center is an enduring tribute to Davison. When he went to Durham in early 1927, there was to be an interval of nearly three years until the building program was completed for the medical school and hospital. During this period he assembled a faculty, acquired the nucleus of a medical library, and conferred with architects on structural arrangements congenial to the dual purpose of teaching students and caring for patients. An international ecumenical symposium on "The Commonwealth of Children" was held at Duke University to honor Davison and his wife on his retirement on 5 Oct. 1961.

VHS Tape. 1 VHS/Videotape Cassette with Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute (AFRRI) logo DU is not a health concern unless it enters the body. This VHS is not a numbered course lecture and appears to be supplementary material. It has the Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute (AFFRI) logo and the Medical Effects of Ionizing Radiation (MEIR) logo. Acting on the human body, the blast shock waves cause pressure waves through the tissues. These waves mostly damage junctions between tissues of different densities (bone and muscle) or the interface between tissue and air. Lungs and the abdominal cavity, which contain air, are particularly injured. The damage causes severe hemorrhaging or air embolisms, either of which can be rapidly fatal. The overpressure estimated to damage lungs is about 70 kPa. Some eardrums would probably rupture around 22 kPa (0.2 atm) and half would rupture between 90 and 130 kPa (0.9 to 1.2 atm).
