In 2005, the Eccles Health Sciences Library was gifted a research catalog belonging to the late Irene Loewenfeld, PhD. A prominent and respected researcher of the human eye, Dr. Loewenfeld edited and published the principal medical textbook on the pupil in 1993 after conducting over 50 years of research on the subject. We will present on Dr. Loewenfeld’s methodology for collecting, synthesizing and organizing her own research and the cultural significance of her achievements.
