Rudolph G. Schmieder Fund

This fund was established in 1986 for the acquisition of zoological materials for the Biomedical Library. Rudolph Gustav Schmieder received his Penn Ph.D. in 1922; his dissertation was entitled, Tracheation of the wings of early larval instars of odonata anisoptera, with special reference to the development of the radius.

With today's exploding information resources, the cost of maintaining a research library in the medical sciences is high. Funds like this help the Penn Library meet the needs of our medical community.

Materials purchased through this fund include:
