Archival Adventures: Diabetes guides before and after the discovery of insulin

It's time for an adventure! Join our community collections archivist, Anthony Wright de Hernandez, for a livestream on Twitch! Every week we explore and discuss materials from Special Collections and University Archives covering topics including university history, NASA pioneers, architecture, science fiction, cooking, LGBTQ+ history, Black history, urban legends, and more. Recordings of previous streams are available on the Libaries' Youtube page.

This week on Archival Adventures we’re exploring our rare books collection for items about diabetes from before and after the discovery of insulin in 1921. If you want a quick primer on the discovery of insulin before the stream, check out The History of a Wonderful Thing We Call Insulin from the American Diabetes Association's blog.

If you are an individual with a disability and desire an accommodation, please email library-event-accessibility-g@vt.edu at least 10 business days prior to the event.
