Contemporary Issues Discussion:
Dental Health

Teenage newlywed Phebe Jane Knapp wrote a letter to her brother in 1851 describing her dental pain as well as other health issues, while she and her husband Marquis settled in the new state of Iowa. Download and read the letter.

All are welcome to a discussion with historians, curators, dentists, and archivists to explore how this powerful letter relates to current issues within dental care. Join in the conversation by sharing your own history and personal reflections with other U-M and local community members over a complimentary lunch. Free, registration is required. Please register online (or call 734-647-0864 to register) by Oct. 28.

Sponsored by Frank and Judy Wilhelme.

Presented by the U-M Clements Library, the U-M Sindecuse Museum of Dentistry, and the U-M Eisenberg Institute for Historical Studies.
