VUMC Through Time is a new historical image website from the Eskind Biomedical Library. It contains more than 1,000 images depicting Vanderbilt University Medical Center’s people and places, from the late 19th century to the recent past.

The images include class composites, group photos of residents, portraits of faculty, images of events and photos of buildings from past and present. Hundreds of images of people are indexed and searchable by name. Users can take advantage of a variety of features, including commenting on images and even uploading their own.

For privacy reasons, some unpublished images of living Vanderbilt medical or nursing alumni are available only to other alumni. Medical alumni may contact Ann Price of the Medical Alumni Affairs office to request the login and password at medalum@vanderbilt.edu, or call 322-0310.

Nursing alumni may contact Susan Shipley of the Nursing Development and Alumni Relations office to request the login and password at alumninursing@vanderbilt.edu, or call 936-3046.
