NEED YOUR HELP

Help with Mayo Brothers Research

An old friend of the MSSC, Kevin Bennet has been asked by Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN (where he holds a high level technical position) to research the Mayo Brothers' use of the microscope for early pathology uses....with the goal of making a historical display for the Clinic's welcome center here in Rochester. If you have any information to help further this research, please e-mail the MSSC webmaster.
