Museum and Art Collections

Object collections within the Lloyd include a variety of pharmaceutical equipment and materials, including extractors, mortars and pestles, medicine bottles (primarily from Lloyd Brothers, Pharmacists, Inc., but also from other manufacturers largely contemporary with the Lloyds), and medical equipment. The museum collection also holds a variety of other items, including diplomas from the Eclectic Medical Institute, awards, plaques, and other memorabilia related to individuals and organizations whose archival records are also held at the Lloyd.

The art collection consists of original artworks, photographs, and other ephemera. Some of it dates from the time of the Lloyds, while other pieces are more recent. Significant holdings include select works from J. Augustus Knapp, commissioned by John Uri and Curtis Gates Lloyd for a variety of projects, as well as the Vesalius Trust Collection of Art in the Service of Science. The Vesalius Trust Collection consists of the work of independent medical illustrators, generally members of the Association of Medical Illustrators, which have been donated to the Lloyd through the Vesalius Trust, a non-profit organization.
