Founded in 1787, the College of Physicians of Philadelphia has an enlightened mission to advance the cause of health while upholding the ideals and heritage of medicine. Its Historical Medical Library was Philadelphia’s central medical library for over 150 years and today is one of the world’s premier research collections in the history of medicine. The College’s collection of early printed books includes more than four hundred incunabula (editions printed before 1501), and their extensive archives and manuscripts document the history of medicine around the world.
Today we are restoring this illustrious 1928 Cope & Stewardson building, addressing both the majestic public spaces and the research libraries. A strong belief that this unique facility advances their mission is serving as our guide to the restoration. Special attention is being paid to climate controls to safeguard precious books, manuscripts, and art; to refreshing the color palette to highlight the historic stone mantels and quarter sawn oak paneling and extensive decorative plaster ornament; improving decorative and task lighting; and uncovering original architectural elements long-hidden due to previous renovations.
