The exhibition panels were developed and produced by the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health.

"The language of the four humors pervades Shakespeare‘s plays, and their influence is felt above all in a belief that emotional states are physically determined. Carried by the bloodstream, the four humors bred the core passions of anger, grief, hope, and fear—the emotions conveyed so powerfully in Shakespeare‘s comedies and tragedies."  -NLM's Exhibition website

While at the John W. Scott Health Sciences Library, you may also want to visit the Rawlinson Rare Book Collection in the Phyllis Russell Rare Book Room. Several works will be on display in the exhibit cases, but many other historical pieces may be of interest. To access the collection, simply approach a staff member at the main service desk.
